Juventus Transfer News | Juve keen on another deal with Cuadrado
Cuadrado continues to be an important source of assists for Juve this season, with ten in the Italian top flight. In all, he has set up 17 goals in all competitions, while just scoring two goals himself. With so much transition on and off the field in Turin, the Bianconeri see him as a key commodity in their near future.
Cuadrado is being courted to sign a contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2023. His versatility as a full-back or winger has only added to his contribution to the team, with Andrea Pirlo seeking a consistent spot for him.
As Cuadrado reaches the end of his term, there has been talking of concern from afar.
Everton is one of the clubs rumored to be interested in bringing an established performer back to the Premier League, with Carlo Ancelotti holding a close watch on the situation at his former side.
Cuadrado has previously mentioned that he would like to return to his origins at some point, but those plans have been shelved.
In March 2020, shortly after signing his last two-and-a-half-year contract, he told ESPN: “I considered returning to Independiente de Medellin. So it may happen later.”
Cuadrado has not been able to help Juventus secure another Serie A championship this season. Despite now having five titles under his belt. He did score a brace in a crucial 3-2 win over Inter that held Juve’s top-four aspirations intact. And he played the full 90 minutes in the Coppa Italia final victory over Atalanta.
