Juventus director Giuseppe Marrotta has revealed that the Italian side will be forced to sign on-loan Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado if they win the Serie A this season, report Football Italia.
Marotta is quoted by Football Italia revealing the details about the three-year loan deal that took Cuadrado back to Turin in the summer: “Juan Cuadrado? He’s on loan at €5m per season, if Juventus win the Scudetto then there will be an obligatory buyout and €20m will go to Chelsea.”
With Chelsea recieving €5 million per season throughout Cuadrado’s loan spell at Juve, they are already guaranteed to recieved €15 million (£13.42 million) of the fee they paid for Cuadrado in January 2015.
BBC Sport reported at the time that the Colombian set Chelsea back £23.3 million. If that is the case, they would record a £9.88 million loss on the winger.
However, Marotta has revealed that deficit could be cut by almost half if Juventus win the title this campaign. If they are successful in retaining their Serie A crown then Chelsea will receive €20 million (£17.9 million) and record a loss of just £5.4 million.
Juventus currently sit top of Serie A, two points ahead of Roma and AC Milan. Something tells us that Roman Abramovich will be wearing black and white striped pyjamas for the next 7 months or so.
