Juventus have confirmed they have triggered the option to sign Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado on a permanent basis from Chelsea.
Cuadrado who signed for Chelsea from Fiorentina in 2015, spent the 2015-16 season on loan in Turin before rejoining Juve last summer on a three-year loan deal.
The Italian champions released a statement on their official website on Monday noting that the Colombia winger, on loan from Stamford Bridge, had signed with the club until 2020. The statement added that Juve will pay the Blues €20 million (£17 million) for Cuadrado in three instalments.
The 28-year-old failed to make an impact under Jose Mourinho, but has been great for the Old Lady since his return to the Serie A.
