The Chelsea winger is reportedly seeking a second loan move to Juventus, according to the Evening Standard. The move is still uncertain though, after new Blues manager Antonio Conte reportedly told the Colombian attacker that he sees him in his plans this season and doesn’t want him to leave.

According to Cuadrado’s agent, Alessandro Lucci, “It’s not an easy question. I will fly to London to try and unblock it.”

A loan fee of roughly $4.5 million has been discussed, with Juventus also said to have an option to purchase Cuadrado at the end of the 2016/17 season.
