According to Italian transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus are set to offer a loan fee of €3-4m to take back Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado for another season. The proposal would have the "same formula" as the 28-year-old Colombian winger’s previous deal, for which Juve paid a €1.5m fee to the Blues.

Juventus' bid for Cuadrado would come from his agent, Alessandro Lucci, who would have to convince club director Marina Granovskaia and manager Antonio Conte in a potential meeting this Thursday that a return to Italy would be the best outcome for all parties involved. Cuadrado's interest in going back to Turin could also play a part in that regard.

The report doesn't mention whether Cuadrado's new loan contract with Juventus would include the notorious "option to buy" clause (ed. note: or whether Juve would do us any future favors, unlike in the case of Paul Pogba, for our charitable donation to their cause for the second year running).
