And off he goes!
As we were already aware after the arrival of Pedro that one of our 8275725 number of wingers is going to leave the Bridge before the end of the window; we were bracing ourselves that it was Cuadrado who was the odd one out here. And rightly so! It is Juan Cuadrado who is going out on a season-long loan to Juventus with the news expected to be made official tomorrow:
Here’s what Juventus chief executive Marotta had to say on the situation:
“We took the opportunity, it is all done and we hope it to be official tomorrow. It will be a loan for the season.
“It was discussed and agreed with [manager] Massimo Allegri. We work on the market in complete harmony with him.
“We have had difficult negotiations with Schalke for Draxler. We will see the opportunity but, at the moment, there is veto from Schalke. It’s a difficult task, but we’ll see by the end of the market.”

Cuadrado had a difficult 8 or so months at the Bridge where he managed to lose the ball and fall over almost every time he was in possession. While, the new signing, Pedro Rodriguez has already scored and assisted once in just a couple of days after his arrival. See, that’s a tiny bit of difference we wanted on the Right Wing!
Hopefully, the magical power of Serie A makes the Colombian rediscover his form so we can make some profit out of him or at the very least manage to get back our money we invested on him? Okay, okay how about cutting our losses? Okay! fine! we will just let him go for a couple of hamburgers, I guess!
