Juan Cuadrado Moves To Juventus On Loan

Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado has completed a loan move from the champions of the Premier League to the champions of Serie A.

The 27 year old signed for the London club for £23.3 million in February, leaving Italian club Fiorentina in order to move to England. But he only made 15 appearances for the Blues with just 4 of them coming in the starting line-up.

With Chelsea signing Pedro from Barcelona on Thursday of last week it became clear that the winger was surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge and Juventus seized upon his unhappiness in England’s capital to take him to Turin.

The Columbian international has already played in Italy not only for Fiorentina but also Lecce and Udinese, so the move to Serie A won’t come as too much of a shock to the winger.

Cuadrado, one of the stand out performers of the 2014 World Cup, was greeted by Juventus fans when he arrived in Italy on Monday night. He successfully passed a medical on Tuesday and has now moved to the Italian champions on a season long loan.
