Marko Marin to join Fiorentina on loan

Published 2 Comments

Football News

Fiorentina are on the verge of signing Chelsea ace Marko Marin, who will join the Italian club on an initial season-long loan deal with a view to completing a permanent switch next summer. The one-time Germany international’s acquisition could pave the way for in-demand Juan Cuadrado to join either the Blues or Manchester United in the coming weeks.

This information comes courtesy of Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who expect an official announcement to be made imminently.

Marin: Chelsea flop?

Marin has made just six Premier League appearances since arriving at Chelsea in the summer of 2012. The 25-year-old winger spent last season on loan with Sevilla, where he won the Europa League, but is now set to begin the next chapter of his career in Italy.

The former Werder Bremen star has almost certainly played his final match for Chelsea, with Fiorentina expected to pay €5 million plus bonuses for the player’s signature at the end of the 2014/15 campaign.

Cuadrado's departure to be confirmed?

Marin could take the place of Cuadrado, who is expected to leave Fiorentina before the summer transfer window closes on September 2.

The £25m-rated Colombia international could be confirmed as a Manchester United player as early as today, according to reports, although Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho plans to hijack the Red Devils’ deal at the eleventh hour.

Barcelona have also been strongly linked with the player, but it seems increasingly unlikely that Cuadrado will be moving to the Premier League this summer - and Marin’s arrival could well speed up his departure from Fiorentina.
