Chelsea round-up: Ray Wilkins hails Juan Cuadrado

Published 3 Comments

Ray Wilkins has insisted that Chelsea have signed an 'outstanding' talent in Juan Cuadrado, reports talkSPORT.

Cuadrado completed a deadline day move to Stamford Bridge last night, and Wilkins has hailed the Colombian ace, suggesting that he can bring added flair to Jose Mourinho's side.

Wilkins has insisted that Cuadrado proved his credentials at this past summer's World Cup and now expects him to succeed on English soil. 

Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show, Wilkins said: "Cuadrado was outstanding in the World Cup for Colombia and he’s been outstanding for Fiorentina. 

"Hopefully he can bring that flair to a Chelsea side which is showing some good form this year."

There's no doubt about it, after the duo of Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah departed the Bridge, Blues fans will be extremely pleased by the signing of Cuadrado as the club go in search of claiming the Premier League title this term.

Bertrand departs 

As well as Schurrle and Salah leaving the Blues yesterday, full-back Ryan Bertrand completed a permanent move to Southampton.The 25-year-old, who has become a key man under Ronald Koeman throughout the campaign, has impressed at the St Mary's in recent time.

Bertrand, who starred in Chelsea's Champions League final victory over Bayern Munich in 2012, signed a four and a half year deal with his new club. 

Fabregas trouble 

Away from the transfer scene, and Blues midfielder Cesc Fabregas has been involved in a slight bit of controversy. In fact, the Daily Mail reported that the Spaniard, who moved to the Blues from La Liga giants Barcelona this past summer, punched a bus windscreen during a road rage incident. 

Blues fans will no doubt be hoping that their star man keeps his calm on the pitch this weekend, as the club prepare to travel to Villa Park to take on Paul Lambert's struggling Aston Villa side.
