Chelsea enter talks with Juan Cuadrado

Chelsea have entered talks with Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado over a potential move in January according to Sky Sports and The Telegraph.

With Mohammed Salah set to leave the club and Andre Shurrle’s future in doubt, Cuadrado would be a like-for-like replacement and another piece of strong business by the London club who are extremely efficient when it comes to sealing transfers quickly.

The 26-year-old Colombian winger has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United dating back as far as July when the Italian press suggested a €40m bid had been launched by Louis van Gaal.

Equally as comfortable both at right-back and right-wing, Cuadrado was considered the perfect attacking defender as with Rafael still being unreliable with injuries and Antonio Valencia not a natural right-back, Man United are expected to be in the market for one.

There will be plenty of United fans looking on with envy as Chelsea negotiate a move for Cuadrado. Not only could he have slotted in perfectly as a wing-back under Van Gaal but his versatility on the wing meant he’d have been a strong addition to the squad.

Of course, at this stage there are no guarantees Cuadrado will move but Chelsea have now started negotiations.
