Chelsea have opened negotiations with Juventus over the permanent transfer of Juan Cuadrado and reports suggest he could be used as a tool to sign Paul Pogba from the Italian giants.
Cuadrado joined Chelsea in January 2015 but struggled for the form and match time. He joined Juventus shortly before the window closed on loan and has so far played 8 times for the Champions League runners-up.
A delegation from Turin will arrive in London during this international break to discuss potentially making the deal permanent and according to reprts in italy Chelsea are hoping to use the talks as a chance to convince Juventus to lower their asking price for Pogba.
The Frenchman was pursued by all of Europe’s top clubs, some of whom were quoted up to and beyond £70 million for the midfielder.
In return for any concession from the Italian champions, Chelsea are willing to let Cuadrado go for £14 million, half what they paid Fiorentina for him.
