Juan Cuadrado is leaving Juventus to join rival Inter Milan.
The Nerazzurri officially announced on their website on Tuesday that they had “signed Quadrado on a two-year contract”. After leaving Juventus as a free agent, Quadrado has found a new home with Inter and will remain in the Italian Serie A.
The Colombian winger has been playing in Europe since arriving at Udinese in 2009. His first big break came in the 2012-13 season when he played for Fiorentina. He scored five goals and provided seven assists in 36 Serie A games. In 2013-14, he scored 11 goals and provided eight assists in 32 games, making him one of Serie A’s top wingers. He then went to Chelsea, where he didn’t play much and was ignored.
He returned to Serie A with Juventus. Unlike his time at Chelsea, Quadrado was a mainstay at Juventus. He played as a winger but also as a wing-back, making him very versatile. No matter which coach came in, he was a regular. His mobility and physical strength, as well as his aggressiveness, made him stand out. He wasn’t the star of the show, but he did his part as an unsung hero. 스포츠토토
After playing 314 official games for Juventus, collecting five Serie A titles and four Coppa Italia titles, he left the club at the end of last season. He was linked to a move to Saudi Arabia, but instead ended up at Inter Milan. The Nerazzurri were looking for a backup to Denzel Dumfries and the idea of an experienced, older, but still competitive player was appealing.
Juventus fans are not happy to see Quadrado in an Inter jersey. Juventus and Inter Milan are traditional rivals. Despite his long-standing commitment, he doesn’t seem to like the idea of joining a rival team.
