£16m Juventus deal to aid Chelsea’s transfer plans

CuadradoChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are taking full advantage of happy hour, after hearing one of Jose Mourinho’s worst signings is set to be offloaded.

The Telegraph state that Juventus want to sign loanee Juan Cuadrado on a permanent deal in January, in a move that could aid Mourinho’s ambitions of adding to his misfiring Blues squad.

It’s added that Chelsea want £18m for the player but are willing to accept Juventus’ cut-price offer, as Mourinho wants immediate cash after the Blues hierarchy made it clear they would not approve a vast spending-spree in the New Year; despite Chelsea’s woeful start to the season.

Chelsea will instead operate with a one-in, one-out policy- which means the sale of Cuadrado will aid their transfer plans, as the club continue to eye Everton defender John Stones and Paris Saint-Germain’s Marquinhos.

The Blues signed Cuadrado in January for £23.3m but the Colombian only made four Premier League states, becoming a major disappointment for the Chelsea fans at the bar who were excited to see the 2014 World Cup star perform in their colours.

Chelsea fans, can Mourinho be trusted with his transfer policy? Let us know in the comments below!
