Juan Cuardrado, a Colombian winger is one of the top Juventus players who in fact has not yet gotten a new contract from the Old Lady until now. The tight competition in the Bianconneri’s main squad next season also adds to the ex-Chelsea’s difficult situation in Turin. Not surprisingly, speculation emerged of the player’s departure for this summer, but Cuadrado himself insisted that he was not at all interested in leaving Juventus.
For your information, Juan Cuadrado was originally a Chelsea player who had been loaned by Juventus since 2015. After two years of running a career as a loan player, Cuadrado finally won Juventus in the summer transfer window in 2017. Not surprisingly, Juventus really can rely on the Colombian National Team player, you could say, he is one of the players who contributed to the club’s success in maintaining the Italian Serie A title for the past few seasons.
But the issue of his departure this summer began to emerge later, with several factors underlying the issue. First, the player’s contract will expire in the summer of 2020, while until now there has been no offer of a new contract from Juventus. Secondly, the arrival of a number of new ammunition this summer, and most likely the close of Icardi or Neymar added competition in the Old Lady’s main squad, which of course threatened the position of Cuadrado next season.
Not surprisingly, the issue of his departure evaporated this summer, with news that the Chinese Super League club, Shanghai Senhua was mentioned as a team that was willing to accommodate the services of the 31-year-old player. But Cuadrado, through his latest statement, emphasized loyalty with Juventus, he felt happy to be settled in the city of Turin, as well as his family, so there was no reason to leave Juventus.
“I feel happy at Juve, my family is happy and our mind is to stay in Turin, this is a fantastic city that makes us feel welcome,” Cuadrado told Il Mattino.
During his defense of Juventus, since 2015, this former Fiorentina player has recorded no less than 137 appearances and scored 14 goals including all competitions.
