REVEALED: Why Juventus’ Serie A win means Chelsea are set for £20m windfall

Date Posted,May 21, 2017

Chelsea’s summer spending plans have taken a boost thanks to Juventus’ Serie A title win on Sunday.

The Bianconeri claimed a record sixth consecutive Scudetto when they saw off Crotone to land the second part of a potential treble, ahead of next weekend’s Champions League final against Real Madrid.

But the Old Lady’s latest title success will be tempered – ever so slightly – by a financial hit that comes as part of Juan Cuadrado’s loan deal.

The Colombian headed to Turin at the start of the season with a clause in his deal that included a £3.4million payment based on the Italian side’s performance this season.

Chelsea received an initial £4million loan payment for Cuadrado at the start of the season and Max Allegri’s side will shell out another £8.4million to make the move permanent.

The 28-year-old has made 43 appearances for Juve this season, scoring four times and notching up seven assists.

That came after he flopped at Stamford Bridge, turning out just 15 times, scoring no goals after he signed from Fiorentina in February 2015 for £23.3million.
