During the summer the Premier League defending Champions were drawn to one of the longest transfer sagas when they tried to sign John Stones from Everton. With the January transfer market ticking close, the Blues seems to have drawn Juventus in a similar saga over a deal for their on loan star Juan Cuadrado.
Various reports emerged that an agreement had been reached between Juventus and Chelsea for the player to remain permanently in Turin but TuttoSport is reporting a bit differently.
The report suggest talks might be ongoing for the player but suggest, the Old lady still wants the aforementioned Colombian to prove his mettle beyond reasonable doubt before Juventus makes it permanent. The high rated South American was linked with Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barca before joining Chelsea.
Cuadrado has become an integral part of Massimo Allegri team and plan but the report envisage a scenario where the 27-year-old Colombian may return to Stamford Bridge after the loan spell since no buy-out clause was inserted in his contract.
Cuadrado is a stable member of starting 11 in Juve.
Cuadrado moved to Chelsea from Fiorentina in the winter transfer window of this year but was relatively a flop as he failed to break into the first team despite the expectation levelled on him. He was signed on for about €30million but the report claims €22million has been agreed upon by the two clubs.
