It’s official – Inter Milan have completed the signing of former Juventus wingback Juan Cuadrado on a free transfer.

The Nerazzurri confirm the Colombian’s arrival in an official announcement. He joins on a one-year deal.

At the end of last month, Cuadrado left Juventus when his contract with the Old Lady expired.

This ended an eight-year association between the 35-year-old and the Bianconeri.

Having joined Juventus from Chelsea in the summer of 2015, Cuadrado went on to make 314 appearances for the Turin giants. He scored a total of 26 goals for the club.

Cuadrado won the Serie A title five times whilst at the Allianz Stadium, as well as the Coppa Italia on four occasions.

The Colombian also came on as a substitute in the 2017 Champions League final, which Juventus lost to Real Madrid.

Juan Cuadrado Completes Surprise Move To Inter Milan On Free Transfer

Few necessarily expected Inter to move for Cuadrado, given his strong Juventus ties.

The Colombian has clashed with the Nerazzurri on several occasions. He has played his part in many heated Derby d’Italia matches and moments.

Nevertheless, Inter have decided to take the opportunity to sign a player with Cuadrado’s proven quality and Serie A experience on a free transfer, in spite of the traditional rivalry with Juventus.

The 35-year-old will sign on just a one-year deal, taking him until the end of next June.

In addition to Juventus, Cuadrado has also played for the likes of Udinese and Lecce in Serie A.

Apart from his exploits at club level, Cuadrado has also made 115 appearances for the Colombian national team.

This makes him Colombia’s second-highest appearance maker of all time, behind only former Napoli and Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina.

Cuadrado has scored eleven goals for his country. He has been an active international since 2010, and has played in two World Cups.
