Colombian journalist Pipe Sierra has revealed that some differences have emerged between Juventus and the camp of rumoured Tottenham target Juan Cuadrado during negotiations over a new contract.
Cuadrado has played more than 250 times for Juventus and has continued to be a mainstay in the starting eleven under Massimiliano Allegri.
However, there is uncertainty over the midfielder’s future in Turin, with his current contract expiring in the summer (Transfermarkt).
Italian journalist Rudy Galetti revealed last month that Fabio Paratici has contacted the Juve star’s representatives over a potential summer move to Spurs.
Journalist Pete O’Rourke has also backed the North Londoners to make a move for the experienced midfielder this summer (GiveMeSport).
Sierra has now offered an update on Cuadrado’s future, explaining that the Colombian international has still not signed a new deal with Juve despite having a verbal agreement with the club’s hierarchy since October of last year.
The journalist explained that some differences have now emerged between the two parties, with the Old Lady asking the midfielder to take a salary cur while the 33-year-old wants to continue earning the same wages.

Cuadrado could be a decent short-term option for Spurs over the next season or two. The 33-year-old would be a useful squad player to have, given his versatility, and his tactical discipline might appeal to Conte. So, I would not be surprised to see us push ahead with a move for the former Chelsea man if he does not pen a new contract with Juve.
