Juan Cuadrado is a £32m January transfer target for Chelsea

Published Add your comment

Chelsea are ready to beat Manchester United to Juan Cuadrado in the January transfer window and are preparing a £32million offer for the Colombia international.

According to the Daily Express, Cuadrado’s future at Fiorentina is in serious doubt because no agreement can be found in attempts to extend his contract.

Manchester United were linked with him in the summer with the likes of Bayern Munich and Barcelona. The report claims that all three are still interested, but Chelsea have moved ahead of them all.

He looked certain to move last summer, most likely to the Camp Nou club, but Fiorentina held strong and were boosted when he indicated a willingness to extend his deal with them.

That has not materialised, however, and now Stamford Bridge scouts believe he would provide a boost for a squad that has been in terrific form at the start of the Premier League season.

Cuadrado is a very attacking player and operates best as a winger, but he is also able to play as a wing-back and can even play as an orthodox full-back.

Fits the bill

New Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal could have used the 26-year-old at Old Trafford earlier in the season when he was deploying a 3-5-2 formation.

That didn’t go well, however, and the Red Devils have now reverted to a flat back four since. It looks as though any desire to sign Cuadrado may be in vain as Chelsea move into poll position.
