Juventus mulling over £14m Chelsea flop deal

Juventus are stalling on a deal to formalise the permanent transfer of Juan Cuadrado from Chelsea, according to talkSPORT.

The Colombian attacker joined the Old Lady on a loan deal over the summer, after failing to impress at Stamford Bridge during his brief six month stint.

Despite some inspired displays while back in Serie A, reports suggest that manager Massimiliano Allegri is not yet wholly convinced he is worth the £14m believed to be required to land him.

He has reportedly told directors at the Turin giants to stall over negations with the Blues while he further assess the 27-year old in the coming months.

Following last summer’s World Cup in his native South America, the former Fiorentina man was one of the hottest properties in European football due to his dynamic displays for Colombia.

However, following a big money move to West London in February this year, Cuadrado could not convince Jose Mourinho to afford him a regular starting berth at the club.
