Chelsea refuse to lower €34m Juan Cuadrado asking price

Jose Mourinho is starting to annoy several clubs over his refusal to accept less than €34 million for Juan Cuadrado, reports Tuttosport.

Chelsea have informed interested parties that the Colombian is available for transfer just six months after arriving from Fiorentina after failing to impress to Special One.

Atletico Madrid, Juventus and AS Roma are all interested in a deal, but have been left frustrated by Mourinho's insistence on receiving the full asking price.

They all believe that it is an inflated price and are not willing to meet it. With Chelsea still saying he is not needed at Stamford Bridge next season, the clubs find themselves at a stand-off for the time being.

The reason Chelsea have chosen such an asking price is because it is slightly more than they agreed to pay Fiorentina to sign him in January.

Collapsing exchange rate

That deal was believed to have been worth £23.3m and also saw Mohamed Salah move to Florence on a six-month loan deal.

It is also in part due to the fact that the Euro exchange rate is collapsing, leaving Chelsea with no choice than to ask for more than they originally paid for the flying winger.

Too proud

Chelsea are also believed to be open to a season-long loan deal, so long as the club in question agrees to pay both a substantial loan fee as well as agreeing to pay the full asking price if the temporary switch proves successful.

So far, the offer has proved too rich for any club in Europe to touch and Mourinho's refusal to accept a loss and prove his transfer decision was wrong, may see him give a squad place to a player he doesn't believe in.
