Chelsea are very close to completing their first transfer of the summer, and it is one of their stars that would be leaving. Juventus are close to activating a clause in the deal that took Chelsea winger Juan Cuadradro to Turin.
Cuadradro joined Chelsea in the winter of 2015, but found it very hard to settle in the Premier League with the Blues. He was limited to a few starting opportunities by then Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho. He was loaned out to Juventus the following summer and has spent two years in Turin.
Antonio Conte had a look at him during last summer’s preseason, but could not guarantee him first team football, and it is now likely he would make his move to Juve Permanent.
According to Italian sources, there is a provision in his current loan deal that obliges Juventus to make his deal permanent should they win the Italian Scudetto, or he plays a certain number of games.
Juventus could win the League title if they can beat Crotone this weekend, and that could see Cuadrado’s move made permanent for a fee in the region of £22 million.
