The Bianconeri have reportedly agreed a loan deal with Chelsea for the Colombia international, who only arrived at Stamford Bridge in January
Juventus have confirmed Juan Cuadrado’s arrival in Italy ahead the winger’s proposed move from Chelsea.
As reported by Goal, the Bianconeri made a move for the Colombia international after the Blues decided to back down on their initial demand for a straight-cash deal and instead make the 27-year-old available on loan, but with a view to a permanent deal at the end of the 2015-16 season.
Cuadrado thus flew to Italy on Monday evening and is now expected to finalise his transfer to the Italian champions on Tuesday.
Indeed, Bianconeri announced upon the player’s arrival at Milan Malpensa airport: “He’s arrived. And he immediately found an extraordinary welcome.”

Cuadrado only joined the Blues in January, with the English outfit agreeing to pay Fiorentina an initial £23.3 million (€32m) for the versatile attacker.
However, after struggling to break into Jose Mourinho’s starting line-up upon his move to Stamford Bridge, the former Udinese ace slipped further down the pecking order following the signing of Pedro from Barcelona last week.
