Did you forget Juan Cuadrado was at Chelsea?
Nobody could blame you.
The Colombian has been on loan to Juventus since 2015, and it looks like after bringing him in for 23.3m, Chelsea are now ready to part ways with Cuadrado permanently – reportedly for nowhere near the price they paid
Reports from England claim that The Old Lady will only need to pay a little over £8 million to complete the deal for the tricky winger. The 28-year-old winger hasn’t set the world alight whilst with them, but has certainly played a key part in a historic season for them. He’s appeared in over 40 matches this season in all competitions.
While Chelsea will be playing Champions League football again next season, and will need as many extra players as they can get their hands on to deal with the added work load, it seems that Antonio Conte does not feel that Cuadrado quite makes the cut.
Selling a player on for such a small amount compared to what was paid is something you rarely see the big Premier League clubs do, but if reports are to be believed then Chelsea are willing to cut their losses in order to bring in some new talent.
Cuadrado has been happy while in Italy, and will most likely have no problem with being shipped out by the Blues’ to continue his career with Juventus.
