Juventus have agreed a deal with Chelsea that sees Juan Cuadrado return to the club on a three-year loan.
After failing to establish himself at Chelsea following his move from Fiorentina in February 2015, Cuadrado spent the 2015-16 campaign at the Turin giants.
The Colombia international made 40 appearances in all competitions as Juve became the first club in Italian history to do the Serie A and Coppa Italia double in successive seasons.
Cuadrado will continue his career on loan at Juve, with the agreement running until June 30, 2019.
The Bianconeri will pay Chelsea €5million per season for the next three campaigns and have the opportunity to purchase him outright in a deal worth €25m.
An official club statement read: “Juventus can today confirm that an agreement has been reached with Chelsea for the loan of Juan Cuadrado until 30 June 2019, for an annual consideration of €5 million.
“Juventus has the right to acquire the player on a permanent basis, or will be obliged to upon the achievement of agreed team results during the loan period, for a fee of €25 million, payable in three financial years, minus the loan fees already paid.
“Should Juventus achieve certain sporting results during the player’s contract of employment, the club will owe Chelsea an additional €4 million in contingent payments.”
Cuadrado featured for the Blues in pre-season but was not used by Antonio Conte in any of his team’s three Premier League matches so far.
