It has been confirmed that Chelsea have sold Juan Cuadrado to Juventus
Cuadrado’s loan deal has now turned into a permanent £17million transfer.
Juventus officially announced the permanent signing of Chelsea forward Juan Cuadrado on their website and are delighted to have the lad sign on.
Cuadrado was one of many players on the Chelsea loan army list and it was said he was growing frustrated with no knowing where his future stood with the Blues.
The 28-year-old, who has spent the last two seasons out on loan in the Serie with the Old Lady, has signed a contract that will keep him at Juve until June 2020.
Juventus will pay the Blues 20million euros (£17m) for Cuadrado, who has made 83 appearances for his new club.
The Colombia international, having also enjoyed a temporary stay at Fiorentina in 2014, initially joined Juventus in August 2015 and then returned this term.
Cuadrado netted three goals in 43 appearances as Juventus won the Serie A title, becoming the first club to notch up six Scudettos in a row, and reached the Champions League final.
A press release published on Juventus’ official website read:
“Juventus announces that, following the meeting of the conditions provided by the contract, its obligation to definitively acquire the registration rights of Juan Cuadrado from Chelsea became due.
“The permanent transfer fee of 20 million euros is to be paid in three annual instalments starting from the 2017/2018 financial year.
“The 28-year-old forward has signed a contract that ties him to the Bianconeri until 30 June 2020.”
