Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado is keen to return to Italy this summer amidst interest from AC Milan, who are keeping their hopes of signing the Colombian alive.

The 28-year-old spent the last season on loan at Juventus, and played a key role in helping the Bianconeri to win their fifth Serie A title in a row during the 2015/16 campaign.

While Juventus have been interested in taking the Colombian back to Turin this summer, in recent weeks the trail has gone cold, and it has been claimed that AC Milan are the ones who are now keen on snapping him up.

And according to Tuttosport, Cuadrado himself is keen to return to Italy in the summer despite Antonio Conte insisting that the player is part of his plans for the new season.

The Colombian has struggled to settle down in England since joining the club in January last year from Fiorentina, and feels more at home in the familiar climes of Italy.  


Conte wants to hold on to the player, but that hasn’t deterred AC Milan from retaining hope of signing the player by the end of the transfer window next month.

The Rossoneri are hoping to propose an initial loan offer to Chelsea for Cuadrado, with an obligatory purchase option at a later date.

His current contract with Chelsea runs until the summer of 2019.
