Considered as a flop at Chelsea having failed to impress for the Stamford Bridge club, Juan Cuadrado was loaned to Juventus in the summer transfer window after Chelsea completed the signing of Pedro from Barcelona.
The former Fiorentina ace now looks set to seal a permanent transfer away from Chelsea after he was quick to establish himself as a fan favourite for the Old Lady’s.
The Daily Star reports that Chelsea are set to enter into talks with Juventus over the permanent transfer of the South American.
The Columbian joined Chelsea from Fiorentina last winter for £26.8m and made twelve Premier League appearances for the west London club without completing a full 90minutes in any of those games.
And now, the winger has impressed his new manager since returning to Turin having becoming a regular in the Juventus team and starting three of the clubs last 4 games playing the full 90minutes in each of those fixtures.
Juventus are confident of signing the player on a permanent deal and it is thought that an offer of £14.7m will be enough to secure his services but they will have to pay an excess of £18.5million.
It is also claimed that Chelsea and Juventus are scheduled to hold talks during the serie A winter holiday and Juan Cuadrado transfer will be top of the agenda.Follow Football News Arena on Facebook and Twitter for the latest transfer news, injury news, team news and rumours from across the major Leagues in Europe and around the World.
