Juventus have agreed a one-year contract extension with Juan Cuadrado.
The versatile Cuadrado initially joined Juve on a season-long loan from Chelsea in 2015, before returning the following campaign on a three-year loan from Stamford Bridge.
Juve then signed the Colombia international on a permanent deal after a contractual clause in the loan agreement was met when the Bianconeri lifted the 2016-17 Serie A title.
However, uncertainty has surrounded the future of Cuadrado at Juve – who have confirmed Paulo Dybala will depart at the end of the season when his contract expires – with his deal set to run out in June 2022.
But the 33-year-old has committed to another year in Turin, with Massimiliano Allegri’s side confirming the agreement on Friday.
“Indissoluble. An adjective that describes something that cannot be brought to an end, cannot be undone or broken,” a statement from Juve read.
“The relationship that binds Juventus to Cuadrado and Juan to the black and white jersey is all in this word. Something strong, which goes beyond the field of play, goes beyond the surface.
“A bond that continues until 2023. Juan is unique, irreplaceable. And it’s great we’re staying together, Panita!”
