Chelsea midfielder Juan Cuadrado is currently playing for Serie A champions Juventus on a loan deal. The Colombian midfielder failed to impress during his stay at Chelsea after his move from Fiorentina in January and moved to the Turin club on a loan move in summer.
According to Italian source Gazzetta Dello Sport, Chelsea and Juventus have an agreement in place to make the deal permanent at €22m. However, both clubs have postponed their negotiations over the possible deal from January to March.
The Italian are trying to get the player for as cheap as possible and will try to make the negotiations difficult for the London club, who want to offload the player. Cuadrado has scored one goal in 12 league appearances for Juventus this season.
Juventus are also interested in one more Chelsea player.
According to Tutosport, Serie A champions are interested in Blues’ midfielder Oscar and are planning to make a summer move for the player. The Brazilian’s form has suffered a dip this season and manager Jose Mourinho will be willing to let go of the player at the right price.
The London club are expected to demand a fee of €40 million for the player who has failed to find his form this season. The 24-year old has managed seven league appearances for the Blues this season and has scored one goal.
Meanwhile, Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic is looking to sign an extension at the club.
The Serbian international claims that he has rediscovered his lost form for the Blues, after an abysmal start to the season. The 31-year-old’s current deal expires in the summer, and he is hopeful that the Blues will offer him a new deal.
“Honestly, I am so happy [here],” he says. “I am trying to do my best. I know I didn’t start the season well, but I am back. I hope the result will be good for the team. In that case, I will be good as well. I hope, and I think we will have time to speak about my future.”
