Juan Cuadrado criticised for little impact

Juan Cuadrado has taken his time settling into life in England.

The Colombian international, a £26m January signing from Fiorentina, has made just a handful of appearances for Chelsea since his move.

And the Daily Telegraph has today published an article that goes into detail on just how little impact the Chelsea winger has made at Stamford Bridge.

It may be a little harsh since he only moved from Italy a couple of months ago, and often signings take time to settle - especially when moving to another country.

But the stats are pretty damning.

The £26m man has played a grand total of 175 minutes for the Blues since his switch, failing to complete 90 minutes once for the club.

The winger, who was so electric in Serie A and at the World Cup with Colombia, has played just 150 minutes of Premier League football, and is yet to find the net or provide an assist.

So far, he's been little upgrade on Andre Schurrle, whose position he took in the Chelsea team.

Having said that, Chelsea have had no reason to call on Cuadrado so far this season, an indication of just how strong their squad is.

The table toppers are heavy favourites to win the title, and thanks to a squad that boasts the likes of Eden Hazard, Willian, Oscar, Cesc Fabregas and Ramires - all of whom can play in attacking positions - Cuadrado does not have to shoulder any burden.

The truer test will come next season, when Jose Mourinho will likely expect a return on his investment.

What do you think Chelsea fans - is calling Cuadrado the 'Invisible Man' too harsh?
