Cuadrado has been a hit at Juventus after a poor start to life at Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho plucked the Colombian from Fiorentina in January 2015 after he scored 11 goals in 32 league appearances in the Serie A in 2013-14.

He only managed 26 league minutes this season for Chelsea before moving on loan to Juventus, where he has three goals in 22 league outings.
