Juventus want Nemanja Matic to join Juan Cuadrado in Turin

Published Add your comment

Juventus and Chelsea are negotiating over the possible transfers of two players, Juan Cuadrado and Nemanja Matic, who could be on their way to Italy next season.

Winger Cuadrado spent last season on loan with the Serie A winners, and Sky Italy understands that the club have offered £1.7 million for another year-long loan before a further £19 million will be paid to make the move permanent.

It is also believed that the 28-year-old favours a permanent move to Italy, after struggling to break into the Chelsea team since joining in 2014.

The Old Lady are also keen on bringing another Blues player to Turin this summer.

Matic, who was floating in and out of the Chelsea team under Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink last season, is said to also be on Juventus's radar. The midfielder was a key part of the Blues team that won the league in 2015, but has since seen a severe dip in form while at Stamford Bridge.

The situation is made even more complicated by the fact that incoming Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, is a big fan of both players and could still decide to keep the pair in England.

The former Italian national team coach will have a struggle on his hands to persuade Cuadrado to stay, after the Columbian had a good season in Serie A, scoring four goals in 28 appearances, helping to drive Juventus to the league title.

It's likely that Matic will be happier to stay, as he looks to cement a place in Conte's new-look Chelsea team. He will hope to become an important player under the Italian as the club heads into a new era.
