Cuadrado has been on loan with Juve for the past two seasons, helping the club to consecutive league and cup doubles.

The Colombian has made over 80 appearances for the Italian giants and is gearing up for their Champions League final clash against Real Madrid next month.

Juventus have now confirmed that they have triggered a clause in Cuadrado’s loan deal to land him on a permanent basis.

Max Allegri’s side have paid Chelsea just over £17m for the 28-year-old and will pay that fee over three instalments in the coming years.

Cuadrado has signed a long-term contract with the club, keeping him in Turin until June 2020.

In a club statement, Juve said: "Two seasons at Juventus, two league titles, as many Italian Cup, a Champions League final on the horizon, and now certain to stay at Juventus.

"A pure talent, a star boy and a model professional, on which Juventus will still count at least three more seasons."

Cuadrado joined Chelsea from Fiorentina in February 2015 for £24m.

However, his Blues career failed to ever catch fire and he leaves the club having only made 15 appearances for them.

He does have a Premier League and League Cup winners medal from his time at Stamford Bridge.

But he will not look back on his time in west London with too many fond memories.
