Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado is being linked with a shock summer move to Juventus.
The 44-cap Colombian international only joined the Blues officially on deadline day earlier this year, penning a four-and-a-half year deal in the process. However, his time at Stamford Bridge could be up after just five months if reports are to be believed.
Serie 'A' pedigree
TalkSPORT cite speculation from SportItalia when claiming that Serie 'A' champions Juventus are considering a move for the player, who moved to England from Fiorentina after two-and-a-half years with the Viola.

The report goes on to claim that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is eager to offload the 27-year-old, and that Massimiliano Allegri views the former Independiente Medellín starlet as an ideal fit for the Old Lady.
Cuadrado moved to Italy from Medellin back in 2009, spending three years with Udinese - one of which was on loan at Lecce. That was followed by the switch to Fiorentina in 2012, before the Blues splashed out £21million on his services in February.
After failing to make a significant impact on the King's Road, coming off the bench more often than not when appearing 12 times in the Premier League, his time could already be up as 'the Special One' looks to shuffle his pack.
The Chelsea boss has already allowed a number of players to leave the club, with Petr Cech perhaps the most high-profile following his move to Arsenal. Asmir Begovic has arrived as his replacement, whilst Radamel Falcao has also joined on loan from AS Monaco.
Nathan is the only other signing so far this summer though, and he's already left for Vitesse on loan. And, if Mourinho is looking to make other significant signings this summer, then the sale of Cuadrado could help finance moves.
