We're all waiting for a deal to be done between Juventus and Chelsea. No, this one's not that one, in all likelihood, but it's still an important and more than welcome one.

Gazzetta dello Sport's report has been confirmed by various sources today, including our favorite transfer oracle, Gianluca Di Marzio. Di Marzio's army of spies have even managed to snap a picture of Juan Cuadrado at Heathrow airport earlier tonight.

Juventus director Marotta had hoped to announce the signing today (Monday), but it looks like he will have to wait at least one more day as the medical is now supposedly scheduled for tomorrow (Tuesday). Regardless, it sure looks like we're pulling the plug on the Cuadrado Experience Experiment after just 6 months. That might look bad, but it's still better than hoping that he'll come good (and win some corners or some such) for the next, say, 3 years.
