The Colombian is expected to return to Turin next week.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte kept Juan Cuadrado completely off the teamsheet in their win against Hull City on Saturday, while Juve’s DS Giuseppe Marotta confirmed the interest.
Conte prior to Saturday’s game told reporters: “We’re waiting. His situation isn’t entirely clear yet, but it will be in the next few days. For now he’s our player and he’s training with us.”
Multiple sources in Italy confirm that Juve is closing in on his return and Alessandro Lucci, Cuadrado’s agent is meeting with Chelsea representatives on Monday to hammer out a “difficult” deal.
Cuadrado, should he return to Italy will be on another loan deal without an option at the end. It will cost Juventus €3.5 million but it’s both an economical and tactical move. This would allow the Bianconeri to bring in another high-profile midfielder because they aren’t breaking the bank on Cuadrado.
