Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado, currently on loan at Juventus, is wanted by Barcelona, according to Goal.
Goal report that Cuadrado has been a target for the La Liga giants for several years and is seen as a potential replacement for Dani Alves. The asking price could be a stumbling block, however, as it is reported Luis Enrique’s side will not pay more than £18 million for the Colombian.
After signing for Chelsea under Jose Mourinho, he was starved of any real opportunities in the side. He subsequently left and spent last season on loan at Juventus. After a successful campaign in Turin in which he scored four goals and provided five assists in their title-winning campaign, he extended his spell there by three-years.
Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta revealed earlier this month, as reported by Football Italia, that his side will be forced to sign Cuadrado next summer if they win the Scudetto this season. They currently sit top of the Serie A standings, five points ahead of nearest challengers Roma.
Barcelona will face a tough task convincing Juventus to not sign Cuadrado on a permanent basis if he continues to score goals like this.
