Cuadrado close to Juventus return

Juan Cuadrado is moving closer to a Juventus return, with reports an agreement with Chelsea is near.

The winger spent last season on loan with the Bianconeri, but there was no buyout clause in the deal and he returned to Stamford Bridge this summer.

New manager Antonio Conte has been a fan of the Colombian for some time, and wanted to keep him in London.

However, the player himself is keen on a return to Italy, and Juve have been negotiating to bring him back on another loan deal.

Following more talks today, Gianluca Di Marzio’s website is reporting that an agreement is getting closer and closer.

It’s expected that the Old Lady will agree to another loan deal, but with a mandatory buyout clause linked to the number of games Cuadrado plays this season.

SportMediaset is also reporting that a deal is close, and agrees it will be a loan with obligation to buy.
