Yesterday, out of nowhere, reemerged the possibility of Juventus getting Juan Cuadrado back for another season, and the information is now doing the rounds in Italy.

Tuttosport were the ones to report the rekindled interest in the Colombian winger after the player reportedly told Antonio Conte he wasn’t particularly thrilled at the idea of a return to London.

Loaned to Juventus last season, the former Fiorentina star was expected to return to Stamford Bridge to play under the former Italy manager as part of his 3-5-2.

However, it seems Juventus have been given hope and would like to have him back on loan for 2016-17, but this time, Chelsea want an option to buy put in there.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus would just like the ‘option’ to buy him at the end, but Chelsea want something more definitive; a bit like the Manchester City and Valencia Alvaro Negredo transfer.

This would mean that, regardless of the player’s performances that year, Juventus would have to pay the fee whether they like it or not.

Considering how well Cuadrado played for Juventus last year under Max Allegri, this wouldn’t be too much of a risk for the Serie A club, with Chelsea wanting €22m (£18.7m) for the player.

It all sounds very believable, doesn’t it?
