Juan Cuadrado is set to remain at Juventus as he enters the final weeks of his current contract at the club.
The Colombian has been a key player for the club since he moved to Turin and automatically triggered a new deal last season.
He has not been impressive in this campaign and there were suggestions that he could leave as a free agent.
Cuadrado has always wanted to remain in Turin and he looks set to get his wish, with pundit Sergio Gasparin revealing the club will keep him at the Allianz Stadium.
He tells Tuttojuve:
“For me, yes, I read that Juventus will renew his contract for another year with lower figures. It would be a great test of maturity, not only for what he does on the pitch but also because in such a difficult moment he would make himself available to meet the club from an economic point of view”.
Juve FC Says
Cuadrado is an important influence in our dressing room and we can trust him to help groom the talents coming through at the club.
This is an important reason we should keep him at the Allianz Stadium for another season and it would benefit the club and the ex-Chelsea man.
Hopefully, he will perform better in the next campaign than he has done in this one.
Once again, let’s hang on and give a contract to someone who is beyond his usefulness on the pitch because he is an good influence in the locker room. The time for influence in the locker room is over. If you had a strong, respected manager, you wouldn’t need influencers.
The need for Cuadrado, De Sciglio, Bonucci, Sandro is overrated and done. If they were so strong, this overrated coach would not have lost the locker room.
Give me young, hungry, on the verge players every day, over older, 1 more paycheck spare tires on the bench.
What so we can see more horror shows from Cuadrado like the Sevilla game? Pathetic decision. We have so much dead wood coming back from loan yet we want to keep more dead wood??!!!
