Chelsea must keep Juan Cuadrado

Despite a rocky start to life in west London, selling Juan Cuadrado would be a foolish move by the Chelsea hierarchy.

Coming off a strong Copa America, Cuadrado has earned a chance to fight for his place in the starting eleven.

Cuadrado, who struggled to impress since signing from Fiorentina in January for £27 million, has shown a glimpse of what he is capable of while playing in the Copa America.

Pacey, powerful, and with the proficiency to track back, Cuadrado was easily one of Colombia's best performers during a rather disappointing Copa America for Colombia.

Cuadrado displayed qualities that Mourinho loves in his team, what with his constant and impressive work rate.

Cuadrado can silence his critics

For example, versus Brazil, Cuadrado was a threat offensively, yet he still managed to effectively track back and, even of some occasions, got the better of Brazilian superstar Neymar.

Furthermore, Cuadrado was able to torment club teammate Filipe Luis and often got the better of him.

From set-piece delivery to dribbling ability, Cuadrado showed us what exactly he is capable of - and his performances have merited a chance to play for Chelsea.     

Coming back to Chelsea for pre-season, Cuadrado must showcase this energetic and lively side of his game.

Indeed if he puts in performances like he did at the Copa America, come the beginning of the season, Chelsea will feel as if they have got a new player on their hands.

Cuadrado has shown us his true colours with Colombia and if the Blues opt to keep him, they have got a potentially game-changing player on their hands.
