Cuadrado returning to Juventus?
Wednesday August 17 2016
Juan Guillermo Cuadrado could return to Juventus on loan for €4m after failing to break into the Chelsea side.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Chelsea have opened the door to releasing the Colombian on a paid loan, perhaps without an option to buy.
It's essentially the same deal as last season, but at €3-4m rather than €1.5m.
A meeting is expected between the two clubs on Wednesday.
This is after the 28-year-old already spent last season on loan with Juve, scoring five goals in 40 competitive appearances between Serie A, the Champions League and Coppa Italia.
He also provided eight assists for his Bianconeri teammates.
Cuadrado never really settled at Stamford Bridge after his €31m move from Fiorentina in February 2015 and has been pushing for a return to Serie A ever since.
Even the arrival of Italian Antonio Conte at Chelsea has not made him feel more at home or closer to a regular starting spot.
Cuadrado had been heavily linked with a move to Milan and his ex-Viola boss Vincenzo Montella, but by signing Jose Ernesto Sosa from Besiktas today, they have filled their non-EU quota.
