Juventus to lower Juan Cuadrado’s salary in contract extension

Juventus are willing to extend Juan Cuadrado’s contract but preserve concerns over offering the same salary.

According to a report from La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus are willing to offer a two-year contract extension with an option for the third at an annual salary of €2.5million.

The report understands that the Colombian earns a salary of €5million per year in his current contract that expires in June 2022. The contract has an option for an additional year. But Juventus, as per the report, will not trigger that clause as the Old Lady is more interested in lowering their overall amount in the wage bill.

Cuadrado turns 34 in May but remains one of the main cogs in Massimiliano Allegri’s newly-orchestrated project in Turin. And with Paulo Dybala leaving the club in the summer, the Juventus management is desperate to keep hold of the valuable services of Cuadrado.

But they are yet to reach an agreement over a contract renewal, with Juve slowing down their renewal talks in the middle of a significant part of the campaign. It is thought that the talks could instigate once the season is over. Multiple clubs from across Europe have kept tabs on the situation.
