Italian champions Juventus have completed the signing of Juan Cuadrado on a permanent deal from Chelsea. The Colombian winger has signed for a fee of 20 million euros (17 million pounds), to be payable in three installments beginning the 2017/18 season. He has put pen to paper a deal that will keep him in Turin till 30 June, 2020.
Cuadrado has been on loan at Juve for the last two seasons and the Bianconeri’s triumph this season triggered the buy clause in his contract. Juve paid 1.5 million pounds for the 15-16 season and 4.25 million pounds for the 2016/17 loan. Chelsea bought Cuadrado for 23.3 million pounds in 2015. There was no re-call clause present in his 3 season loan deal.
The ironic bit- one of the reasons for now Chelsea manager Conte leaving Juventus was because the club did not sign Cuadrado.
