Juventus have decided against the idea of renewing terms with their Colombian superstar as the club are looking for a younger right-back
Ever since the arrival of Italian maestro Andrea Pirlo, Juventus fans have noticed a positive impact on the performances by the team as they look forward to clinching their 10th Scudetto in a row and are hoping to end their Champions League drought.
Juventus experienced a busy summer transfer window which saw them recruit a plethora of talent from all around the world and shed deadwood in return. However, the Bianconeri failed to sign a right-back and will have to make use of Juan Cuadrado for the rest of the season as their makeshift right-back.
Given the fact that the former Chelsea man is currently used as a makeshift right-back, Andrea Pirlo is on the lookout for a younger right-back to be signed in the winter transfer market or next summer. Once Juve gets their hands on a thorough right-back, Juan Cuadrado will more or less have no role in the Turin side.
The Colombian is primarily deployed as a right-winger, however, with the signing of Federico Chiesa and the return of Federico Bernardeschi, there is no room on the right-flank for Cuadrado. This potentially signifies that either Juan Cuadrado would have to part ways with the Italian side or he would have to play a secondary role at the club.
The South American’s current contract will ends in 2022, making him 34 years old by the time his contract expires. Reports state that the Bianconeri has decided to not extend the Colombian’s agreement with the club after 2022, giving him an option to move away from Turin after five long years.
The 32-year-old’s involvement in the next game seems uncertain due to his participation in the international games against Venezuela and Chile. It will interesting to see how his role develops with the team and the coach for the ongoing season.
