These are nine footballers who played for both Chelsea and Juve:
The Colombian winger was signed by José Mourinho from Fiorentina in February 2015, the season in which he ended up winning the Premier League.
However, at the beginning of the following season, Cuadrado ceased to be the preferred player of the Blues and was loaned to Juventus, Serie A champion. The Colombian started with the Old Lady during his two assignments and won two league titles and two cup titles.
The winger was signed by Juventus in the summer for 20 million euros.
Chelsea seized Nicolas Anelka from Bolton Wanderers for £ 15m in January 2008. The striker became the undisputed starter for the Blues alongside Didier Drogba. During her time at Stamford Bridge, Anelka was very effective in goal, her team winning a Premier League in the 2009/10 season and two English Cups.
However, the Frenchman’s passage through the Serie A giant was quite disappointing. He moved to Italy in 2013 to play for Juventus on a loan, but found few opportunities to show his skills. Anelka was only able to play two games during her stay at the Turin club before ending her loan to return to the Chinese Super League.
Tiago Mendes signed for Chelsea in 2004 and was part of José Mourinho’s restructuring of the Blues squad to make them more competitive in both the national and continental championships. Mendes had a good season at the club, where he guided his team to Premier League glory.
However, with the signing of Essien, his opportunities in the first team were limited and he submitted his transfer request after just one year with the Blues. The Portuguese footballer moved to Juventus from Lyon in 2007 and had a very disappointing first season in Italy, forcing Mendes to stay on the bench most of the time.
The shortage of opportunities in the first team, coupled with his poor performance, forced the Italian team to part with him in 2010.
Adrian Mutu was signed by Parma as part of Roman Abramovich’s spending campaign to make Chelsea a force to be reckoned with in the Premier League. However, the Romanian footballer only lasted one season at Stamford Bridge, as the club dumped him after Mutu failed a doping test.
After being fired from Chelsea, he signed for Juventus in Turin in 2005. In his two years at the Turin club he had a good performance, as he won two consecutive Serie A titles. However, both titles were revoked due to the scandal of the Calciopoli.
Like Vialli, Casiraghi spent most of his professional career in Italy. The Italian forward was signed by Juventus from Serie A in 1989. His stint at the Old Lady was modest, with 20 goals in 98 games. During his time at the Turin club, he managed to add two UEFA Cup trophies to his showcase.
The Italian was in the twilight of his career when he joined Chelsea in 1998. The forward’s spell at Stamford Bridge was marked by injuries and he had very little participation in the first team. However, Casiraghi managed to win the FA Cup and a UEFA Super Cup while representing the Blues in the Premier League.
Didier Deschamps moved to Italy from French Marseille to represent Juventus in 1994. During his five years at the Turin club, he became a regular and became an integral part of the Italian team.
In Italy he was highly successful and won three Serie A titles. In addition, he added a Champions League champion medal in 1996 and also finished the competition in second place twice.
After a successful spell in Italy with Juventus, Chelsea signed the Frenchman in 1999. However, he spent only one year with the Blues, adding the FA Cup trophy to his impressive record.
Vialli spent most of his professional career playing in Serie A. After spending eight successful years at Sampdoria, he joined Juventus in 1992. The Italian forward spent four years at the Old Lady, where he won a Scudetto and a Liga. of Champions.
Chelsea managed to move to England in 1996, after the expiration of their contract with Juventus. However, opportunities to play in the first team were limited until 1998, as the Italian had a dispute with then-Chelsea manager Ruud Gullit.
Following Gullit’s departure in 1998, he was promoted to player-coach, where he won a UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup and a UEFA Super Cup. He retired from professional soccer in 1999 to become a full-time coach at Stamford Bridge.
Álvaro Morata, without any doubt, is a player who has triumphed much more in his stay in Turin than in his time at Chelsea. Since he left Real Madrid in no team he has been through has he managed to show a level similar to the one he showed at Juve.
At the moment, like his entire team, he is experiencing a difficult period, as the post Cristiano Ronaldo era has not started in the way the fans expect.
Like Álvaro Morata, Gonzalo Higuaín was never able to show the level he offered in Italy at Chelsea. Despite the many criticisms he has always received, there is no doubt that Gonzalo Higuaín has been one of the forwards with the most goals of the 21st century.
In England he did not have the same luck, and it is that his time in the English league will not be remembered by absolutely anyone. He passed without pain or glory through the Premier League.
