A report from Sport Witness has stated the transfer business at Juventus is not done yet, and the next player who could be making a switch to Turin is Chelsea’s misfit Juan Cuadrado. The South American who before he joined Chelsea was linked to Manchester United has been a flop so far.
The Serie A side have been active with transfers this summer with several ins and outs. Arturo Vidal is the latest player, out of many, who have left Massimiliano Allegri’s side as the player recently joined Bayern Munich. Andrea Pirlo and Carlos Tevez have gone to New York City and Boca Juniors respectively, with defender Angelo Ogbonna switching to the English Premier League with West Ham United.
However, coming in at the Turin side have been Mario Mandzukic from Atletico Madrid and Paolo Dybala from Palermo. Simone Zaza has also joined from Sassuolo and Robert Perreyra has made his loan move from Udinese permanent. Now, last year’s Champions League finalist are not done with transfer, says Sport Witness, and they see Chelsea’s Cuadrado as an option and one who would be easy to get.
Sport Witness cite Gazzetta dello Sport who claim in their Monday edition that Juventus are really considering making a swoop for Cuadrado and are of the feeling it could be done “quite easily”, considering their economic and financial positions.
Cuadrado has failed to make an impact since moving to Stamford Bridge from Fiorentina in February and the Colombian’s exit would come as a huge surprise, even more than that of Filipe Luis who recently made a return to Atletico Madrid this summer.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho said Cuadrado remains a Chelsea player and will not be sold. But then, the Portuguese had also declared in January before the player was bought that he would not be buying the winger, so Jose’s words regarding transfers are always ironic. Albeit not all the time.
