Juan Cuadrado is closing in on an end to his nightmare seven month spell at Chelsea, with reports on the back pages in Italy claiming Juventus are close to completing a loan deal with the option to buy.

Cuadrado moved to Stamford Bridge in January for £23.3 million, after scoring 26 goals in 106 games for Fiorentina and impressing for Columbia at the 2014 World Cup, finishing as the tournaments top assist maker, alongside Toni Kroos.

However the 27-year-old has failed to showcase his talents at Chelsea and has made just 13 league appearance and four starts.

Following the £21.4 million signing of Pedro, the Columbian has fallen even further down the pecking order and looks set to end his short spell in West London.

The Mail reported Cuadrado was originally offered to Juventus as part of a player plus cash deal for Paul Pogba, but is now in line to join the Old Lady regardless of Pogba's situation.

Italian newspapers Corriere dello Sport and TuttoSport have led with the news of Cuadrado's imminent move on their back pages today.

Some could argue that Cuadrado was never given a chance to impress at Chelsea, as he failed to break into a title winning side last season, but when he was given the opportunity to play, from the start or off the bench, he looked way off the pace of the Premier League.

The signing of Pedro is sure to add class, creativity and penetration to Chelsea line-up that Cuadrado could not offer and a move back to Italy for the Columbian could give him the opportunity to rekindle his career after a stuttering half a year.

Chelsea fans, would you have liked to see Cuadrado be given more of a chance or wasn't he good enough? Have your say below!
