Juventus manager Max Allegri will block Juan Cuadrado’s departure from the club in the January transfer window, according to Calciomercato.com. The Bianconeri boss has reportedly told Juve’s executives in the last few days that the winger is an integral part of his plans.
The Italian press linked the Colombian international with a move to Arsenal earlier in the summer, but the Italian website reports that Paris Saint-Germain and Roma were the most interested clubs in the summer.
PSG were looking at the 29 year old as a replacement for Lucas Moura, who could have joined Monaco as part of the deal for Kylian Mbappe. The Brazilian however remained at the Parc des Princes. Juve meanwhile rejected overtures from Roma as they are a divisional rival.
In any case, it seems Arsenal’s interest was not particularly serious, and even if it was, Allegri seems to have placed a major obstacle in the way of Cuadrado leaving the Bianconeri any time soon.
