Chelsea reach agreement to ship outcast midfielder back to Italy

Posted by

Chelsea and Juventus have reportedly reached a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ over a deal for Colombian international winger Juan Cuadrado, according to Sport Witness.

The Blues brought the 27-year-old in from fellow Serie A side Fiorentina back in January, but he only lasted six months at Stamford Bridge and was sent back to Italy in June on a season-long loan deal.

The defending Italian champions are apparently keen on keeping hold of the player beyond the end of the current campaign, with the report claiming that a £15.9million fee has been agreed between the two sides.

However, just because the teams have agreed with each other, it doesn’t mean that the player himself has managed to reach personal terms to prolong his stint in Turin. Initial talks were planned for January, but the report rounds off by claiming they have now been pushed back until March.
