Cuadrado heads back to Juventus

Juventus have announced that winger Juan Cuadrado has rejoined the club from English Premier League side Chelsea on a three-year loan deal.

Cuadrado is said to be held in high regard by manager Antonio Conte, which makes the move somewhat of a surprise and the three-year loan move to the Italian giants is said to be worth 5m euros a year.

Last season the Colombia international helped the Old Lady secure their fourth successive Scudetto and head coach Massimo Allegri is said to be elated with his return to the club.

"It is with great pleasure that all associated with Juventus Football Club welcome back Juan for the upcoming campaign and wish him further success in the black and white," read a statement on Juventus website.

Despite the loan agreement, the Bianconeri have an option of making the deal permanent at any point for a fee of 25m euros.
