Chelsea: South American star to be AXED; Juventus keen as Paul Pogba deal collapses

Chelsea are willing to offload Juan Cuadrado to Juventus on a loan deal after failing to tempt the Bianconeri to offload Paul Pogba.

Jose Mourinho had hoped to bring the France international to Stamford Bridge, and saw Cuadrado as an ideal makeweight to tempt Juve to sell the powerhouse midfielder.

However, with the Italian champions making it abundantly clear that they are not prepared to countenance Pogba’s departure, it looks unlikely that Cuadrado will return to Italy permanently.

Chelsea are still looking to offload the player, however, and according to Sky Sport Italia [via Football Italia], are prepared to send the wideman to Turin on a season-long loan.

The move would be purely temporary, however, and Juve would not have the option to buy the player.
