Juventus winger coy about Chelsea return

With an expected change on the Chelsea bench, the Colombian has preferred to focus on first finishing the season rather than contemplate his future

Cuadrado Soccer: Serie A, Juventus-Genoa

The rumoured appointment of Antonio Conte at Chelsea could affect the future of their loaned-out midfielder Juan Cuadrado.

Cuadrado is enjoying a temporary spell at Juventus after falling out of favour in London under the Blues’ former coach Jose Mourinho, but with a managerial change due to take place at Chelsea he could yet have a future at the Premier League club.

However, a difficult decision may face the Colombian in the summer as the Bianconeri are also keen to secure his services after impressing this term.

“I’m very happy at Juventus and [not thinking about Chelsea],” the 27-year-old told Premium Sport. “My only thought is to finish the season as strongly as possible.

“As far as what I do in the future, we’ll have to see what happens at the end of the season.”

Three goals and four assists have been the output from Cuadrado this season in Serie A action, with the former Fiorentina man having made 20 league appearances in a Bianconeri shirt.

Juventus sit atop Serie A after a sluggish start to the season and are also still very much in the mix for a Champions League quarter-final spot, with the Colombian confident they can qualify when they face Bayern Munich.

“We have to go to the Allianz Arena with the same mentality we showed in the second half of the first leg,” he said. “We’re a great team and we know we can play well. We’ll be going on the pitch and to try to win.”
