Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado is closing in on a permanent move away from the club.
The Colombian winger is set to join Juventus permanently soon. Both Chelsea and Juventus have a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ according to Gazzetta Dello Sport (via Sportwitness).
The Italian news outlet claims that Cuadrado is likely to join Juventus for a fee of 22 million euros.
Although there were possibilities of the player joining permanently in January, it seems that the final talks have been delayed for now and the player will have to wait until summer now.
The Colombian arrived for a lot of money from Fiorentina earlier this season and failed to impress.
Mourinho was quick to get rid of the deadwood and the South American was loaned to Juventus at the start of this season.
The former Fiorentina player has done well after returning to Serie A and the Italian champions are willing to make the move permanent.
Cuadrado leaving Chelsea would be a great move for all parties involved. Furthermore, the Blues are in need of another winger and it would be interesting to see where the Cuadrado money is being reinvested.
