Juventus and Chelsea have a “gentleman agreement” in place for the permanent transfer of Juan Cuadrado, according to Sport Witness.
The Colombian joined Juventus last summer on a loan deal and the Serie A side are said to be impressed with the form of the Colombian international and wants to sign the winger on a permanent deal.
According to the Metro via Gazetta dello Sport, both clubs have agreed a fee of £15.9m that would see the player move be made permanent.
However it was thought that the move will be made official as early as January but talks have been postponed until March next year, according to the report.
Both Juventus and Cuadrado’s representative are confident the deal will happen as Chelsea believes the player no longer has a future at the club and the winger also wants to remain in Turin. Juventus Chief Guisseppe Marrotta has also spoken of his desire to retain the midfielder.
The Blues are keen to improve their squad in January and next summer and the funds from the sale of Cuadrado will help the West London club to finance their own transfer plans.
Cuadrado joined Chelsea in January from Fiorentina for a fee of about £25m and failed to establish himself at the club. He played 13 games for Chelsea and didn’t score a single goal in the Blues shirt.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.
