With the arrival of Pedro, it has become increasingly likely that one of our wingers is set to leave the Bridge on loan/permanent transfer before the end of the summer window.
After the signing of Robert Kenedy, who is, by the way, set to stay with the Blues, rather than going out on loan, it is reasonable to say that we have one too many wingers for couple of positions. So, who is the odd one out?
The reports, in the past few days, suggests that one of Victor Moses and Juan Cuadrado won’t be wearing the Blue colour before the transfer window ends. Spurs have been keeping a track on Moses’ situation for the past few weeks while, Juventus are eager to bring the Colombian on loan to Italy.
According to a report published in Football Italia:
“Juventus are on the verge of signing Juan Cuadrado from Chelsea on loan, without an option to buy.
“He finds his playing time further limited by the arrival of Pedro from Barcelona and Chelsea want him to rediscover his confidence in Serie A.
“It’s believed Juve have negotiated a dry loan – so without an option to buy – at a cost of €1.5m (around £1m).
“In turn, Chelsea hopes to get in Juve’s good books for a potential Pogba approach next summer, when Barcelona will pour all their cash into the Frenchman.
“Cuadrado’s agent Alessandro Lucci has flown to London to push for this move and a medical could happen on Monday.”
I am not sure how this deal could help us land Pogba unless, Cuadrado mysteriously rediscovers his World Cup form and we can, maybe, include him in some swap deal involving Pogba. Sounds very far fetched, but things like that happen in football. Right now, all we want is to get rid of the Colombian, at least for this season!
