Inter Milan agree deal to sign free agent Juan Cuadrado

Inter Milan have reached an agreement to sign free agent Juan Cuadrado on a one-year deal, reports Sky Sport Italia.

The Colombian wing-back recently parted ways with Serie A rivals Juventus after his contract expired.

Cuadrado could have his medical tests on Tuesday, and Alfredo Pedulla reports that he will earn €2.5 million per year plus bonuses.

The 35-year-old has been a key player for the Bianconeri, making 314 appearances and winning five consecutive Serie A titles from 2015/16 to 2019/20.

Cuadrado’s signing may incur some criticism due to Inter’s fierce rivalry with the Old Lady.

The Colombian full-back will compete with Denzel Dumfries for the right-wing back spot following Raoul Bellanova’s exit.

The Italian youngster moved to the San Siro last summer on loan from Cagliari but struggled for playing time. He recently joined Torino on a permanent transfer.

Dumfries has also been linked with an exit this summer, but the interest from suitors appears to have cooled off.

With Cuadrado’s transfer, Inter will continue their trend of signing seasoned players – a tactic which has proved to be productive in recent years.

The Colombian could be the fourth arrival of this transfer window after Marcus Thuram, Davide Frattesi and Yann Bisseck.

Inter are also actively looking for a goalkeeper and a striker.

Andre Onana is on the cusp of joining Manchester United, and Inter have identified Anatoliy Trubin and Yann Sommer as replacement options.

Inter have reportedly pulled out of the race to re-sign Romelu Lukaku, identifying Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun as his replacement.
