Juan Cuadrado says he is much happier at Juventus than he ever was at Chelsea, claiming that Italy is a second home to him.
Cuadrado joined Juventus in the summer on loan and is expected to complete a permanent move to the Serie A champions in the summer. ChelseaNews24 reported as to that just a few days ago, and the Colombian finds the prospective transfer an exciting one.
He is quoted as saying this in the Italian media:
“The idea of coming back to Italy attracted me a lot. I know the football here, I know the language and the people, and the truth is it feels like my second home.
“So when I had to decide about whether to take this chance or not, I talked to my agent every day about my return and now I am very happy to be here at Juventus.
“When you already know the language and the people then it makes it a lot easier for you. And there being a lot of players from South America in the team – that also helps.
“Coming to the team was no problem, it’s a great team with great players and great personalities, and they really embraced me in the best way possible.”
Cuadrado started just four games for Chelsea since last January when he joined from Fiorentina. His going to Juventus has prompted suggestion that there could be a deal for Paul Pogba to come to Stamford Bridge but nothing has yet happened.
