Juventus on the verge of signing Cuadrado on loan from Chelsea

TURIN, Italy --

Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed the club is on the verge of signing Colombia winger Juan Cuadrado on loan from Chelsea.

Speaking before Juventus' opening Serie A match against Udinese on Sunday, Marotta told Sport Mediaset ''Cuadrado will arrive on loan. It could be made official as soon as tomorrow.''

Cuadrado moved to Chelsea from Fiorentina on the final day of the Premier League transfer window in February for around $40 million, signing a four-and-a-half-year contract. The deal saw Mohamed Salah - now at Roma - move the other way on loan.

However, the 27-year-old Cuadrado failed to settle at Stamford Bridge, and made only four league starts last season.
