Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado has spoken of how he "did everything" to secure a return to Juventus after completing a three-year loan to the Serie A side.
Cuadrado left Stamford Bridge at the back end of August for a second successive spell in Turin, where he scored five goals last season.
Juventus will reportedly pay £4m a season for the 28-year-old and will need to stump up an extra £8.4m if they wish to make the deal permanent, with Cuadrado delighted to have completed a move he has pushed for throughout the summer.
“It’s exciting," he told JTV.
"To see the stands and the noise the fans make, I’m excited by the public’s support.
"I did everything to come back, and thanks to God I’m here. I’m very happy.”
His return to Italy brings to an end an unhappy 18 months at Stamford Bridge for the Colombian, despite suggestions he would be offered a chance to prove himself to new manager Antonio Conte.
Cuadrado appeared in the pre-season victory over Liverpool but with Willian and a rejuvenated Victor Moses both available to Conte on the right flank, his first-team opportunities were set to be limited.
