Chelsea have agreed to sell Juan Cuadrado to Italian Serie A side, Juventus, on a permanent deal, according to reports in Italy.
Cuadrado is on a season-long loan in Turin, having signed from Chelsea in the summer – and reports in the country now suggest that a deal is in place for the Colombian international.
Having seemingly no future at the West London outfit, Juventus’ General manager, Giuseppe Marotta, is keen to sign the 27-year-old on a permanent basis.
“We have no agreement to [sign him on a permanent basis], it is just a loan [without option to purchase him],” he told La Gazzetta Dello Sport.
“He’s expressed his happiness at being here with us, and his happiness to continue here in future.
“We’ll look at things with Chelsea at the appropriate time, but it’s very likely that there will be a good conclusion.”
Cuadrado said: “[My situation is] all in the hands of God, but I hope my former Chelsea teammates and Mourinho recover as soon as possible, they are strong and will react.
“I must admit my love for Serie A, Italian football, for a country that feels like my second home. Yes here I give my best, I’m fine.”
