Chelsea are planning to meet Juventus officials and Juan Cuadrado’s agent on Monday to close out the Colombian’s departure from the club.

Antonio Conte indicated in his press conference yesterday that the 28-year-old winger could be on his way out of Chelsea this month, with Juventus pushing to sign him.

His agent, Alessandro Lucci, met Chelsea yesterday for further talks, and it has been claimed that the Blues have more or less accepted the deal proposed by Juventus.

According to Italian broadcaster Sky Italia, the west Londoners are planning to schedule another meeting on Monday to finalise an agreement with Juventus that will see Cuadrado move back to Italy by the end of the window.

An initial loan deal plus purchase option is being discussed, and Chelsea are set to pocket a loan fee of €3m to €4m for Cuadrado’s move to Juventus this summer.  


The Colombian spent last season on loan at Juventus and the Italian champions have been pushing to take back to Turin all summer.

Chelsea were initially reluctant to lose Cuadrado as Conte is a fan, but the player wants to return to Italy, where he has achieved most of his success as a footballer.

He joined Chelsea form Fiorentina in January last year, but never settled down in English football.
