Chelsea and Juventus have reportedly reached an agreement over a deal for Colombian international Juan Cuadrado, according to reports.
The 27 year old moved from Italian side Fiorentina in February 2014 for an initial fee of £23.3 Million which would rise to £26.8 Million when bonuses are added to the deal. The player spent only 6 months with the Blues before going out on laon to Italian giants Juventus.
The deal is said to be made permanent with both club reportedly agreeing a fee in the region of £15.9 Million meaning the Blues are willing to lose above £10 Million in the deal.
Cuadrado failed to impress at Stamford Bridge and failed to register a single goal in his appearances for the Blues; although at Juventus he has been impressive, scoring goals and making assist; even winning two man of the match award for his performances for the Old Lady.
Cuadrado seem to be suited for the Italian style of play as his qualities are already on display; prompting Juventus to want to make his loan deal permanent.
Is it that the Premiership is too physical for the Colombian or Chelsea’s style of play did not match his? Whatever the case may be, its best he stays with Juventus to prove his qualities rather than returning to the Bench at Chelsea.
