Marotta revealed Cuadrado will join on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent transfer and he expects the transfer to be concluded on Monday.
“The opportunity to get Cuadrado presented itself and we took it. Now, it is up to Allegri, who is an excellent coach”.
Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta confirmed Sunday that not only has the defending Serie A-winning side made an approach for the 27-year-old, but that the completion of a deal to bring the Colombian winger back to Italy is imminent.
Mourinho however remained confident the forward would meet work permit requirements set out by the FA and told reporters in the summer he will include the player in his first team plans, rather than send him out on loan.
“It’s not a real possibility right now because Schalke have vetoed it”, Marotta added.
The deal saw Mohamed Salah – now at Roma – move the other way on loan. “It’s a hard task, but we’ll see by the end of the market”.
The Colombia worldwide has made just four Premier League starts and 15 appearances overall, failing to score in any competition.
The Colombian only arrived at Stamford Bridge from Fiorentina in February on a four-year deal for a fee of around £26m but has not been able to secure a regular place under Jose Mourinho.
But Cuadrado has found playing time limited in west London.
