The Portuguese has become famed for his tactical nuance both on and off the field, and sealing the signing of Pedro from under the noses of Manchester United could prove to be one of his biggest victories as Chelsea boss.
Juventus are still interested in Cuadrado and now Pedro has come in Chelsea are willing to sell.

However, if Chelsea can table a mega bid of 70 million pounds (which is believed to be the asking price), Juventus might find it hard to turn down.
Speaking ahead of his team’s game against West Brom, Mourinho played down the prospect of the club offloading a player following Pedro’s arrival.
Cuadrado, who has failed to make an impact since joining from Fiorentina, could also still have a future due to Chelsea’s size of squad.
Moses played in Chelsea’s 1-0 Community Shield defeat to Arsenal earlier this month but is not expected to feature regularly in Mourinho’s XI.
The report comes with little surprise, as Moses already sits behind Eden Hazard, Willian, Oscar, Ramires and Juan Cuadrado.
The Gunners paid £42.5million to sign Ozil from Real Madrid in 2013 and will want to recoup the majority of that fee if they decide to sell him.
“I’m so happy with Begovic’s performance, showed clearly what we have, but we go back to Courtois”. Instead, Pedro’s signing could spell the end for a player who has yet to celebrate the first anniversary of his time at Stamford Bridge. Of course, £100m probably won’t get the two signed – mainly because Juve will want more than £60m for Pogba – but if they’re going to spend a ton of money then at least they’re doing it on the right players. Just 23. So let us be calm and see what happens.
