Juventus have been seriously impressed with their loan signing Juan Cuadrado and are already considering a permanent deal next summer, reports the Evening Standard.

The Serie A champions signed Cuadrado on a temporary basis from Chelsea this summer after he failed to win the favour of Jose Mourinho.

He started only four games after moving to Stamford Bridge from Fiorentina for £26.1million in the January transfer window, but still bagged a League Cup and Premier League winner's medal.

Despite only having six months to settle to the physicality of the English game, Mourinho had already made his mind up on the Colombian and placed him on the transfer list.

Unsurprisingly, the Special One wanted to regain every penny of his original outlay, but clubs were only willing to take him on a temporary basis with Juventus eventually winning the race.


However, Cuadrado, who made his name in Serie A with the Viola, has immediately settled in Turin and is already rekindling the kind of form that convinced the Blues to fork out such a sizeable transfer fee. As a result, Massimiliano Allegri is plotting a permanent move.

The 27-year-old even played a significant role in their recent Champions League tie against Manchester City, playing 90 minutes as the Old Lady came from a goal down to win 2-1.

Swap deal

If Juventus decide they want Cuadrado, it could end up working in Chelsea's favour, especially if they decide to firm up their interest in Paul Pogba next summer.

Mourinho was supposedly considering a club-record £60m bid for the midfielder this summer, but Cuadrado could help to bring that figure down significantly if offered in part-exchange.
