Juan Cuadrado signs for Juventus from Chelsea on season-long loan
Juventus have completed the signing of Chelsea's Juan Cuadrado on a season-long loan.
Cuadrado, who only moved to Stamford Bridge from Fiorentina in January, passed his medical in Turin on Tuesday morning before putting his signature on the paperwork to finalise his deal in the afternoon, the Bianconeri announced on their official website.
The 27-year-old, who also counts Udinese and Lecce among his former sides in Italy, joined Chelsea for a fee worth up to almost £27 million, including bonuses, after starring for Fiorentina but failed to impress during his brief stay in England.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho had backed the Colombia international to succeed this season but he became surplus to requirements after the signing of Pedro from Barcelona.
He now becomes an additional option to Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri for the trip to Roma on Sunday as they look to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat to Udinese at the weekend.
