Cuadrado returning to Juventus


Chelsea's Juan Cuadrado is returning to Juventus on a three-year loan.

Cuadrado signed for the Blues from Fiorentina during the January 2015 transfer window but made just four starts before being allowed to return to Italy, where he helped La Vecchia Signora to a fifth successive title.

Having impressed Blues manager Antonio Conte during his loan spell with Juventus last season, the Colombia international had been expected to be given the opportunity to fight for his first-team place at Stamford Bridge but the clubs have agreed a deal that will see Cuadrado return to Italy.

Under the agreement, Juventus will pay Chelsea €5million per season for the duration of the three-year deal with the opportunity to purchase him on a permanent deal for €25million.

"Juventus can today confirm that an agreement has been reached with Chelsea for the loan of Juan Cuadrado until 30 June 2019, for an annual consideration of €5 million," Juventus said in a statement.

"Juventus has the right to acquire the player on a permanent basis, or will be obliged to upon the achievement of agreed team results during the loan period, for a fee of €25 million, payable in three financial years, minus the loan fees already paid.

"Should Juventus achieve certain sporting results during the player's contract of employment, the club will owe Chelsea an additional €4 million in contingent payments."
