Chelsea already boast of one of the strongest squad even if not the strongest in the EPL, and now reports are out that Chelsea are about to secure the signing of Colombian international and Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado. Looks like the deal can’t wait anymore as Mourinho is reportedly interested in pushing it forward in order to make his already strong squad more formidable.
However, the manager may need to ship out a player or two from his squad in order to accommodate the Colombian who was in spectacular form during the last FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Reports are rife in the media that Cuadrado’s agent was in London on Wednesday to discuss the possibility of a move to London. Now this would represent a massive message of intent and further reinforce the belief held by a lot of people that Chelsea are the uncrowned EPL Champions.
Chelsea already boast of players like Fabregas, Hazard, Costa, and the likes; but adding Cuadrado to that squad will further make the team stronger.
Chelsea have a knack for getting transfers like this done and over the line regardless of whether it is in the summer or the winter, and that is why I have a feeling that we might just consider this one almost a done deal. The manager is already making plans to sell and loan out Schurlle and Salah, which will create space for the signing of the Fiorentina player.
£26.8million which is also the player’s buy-out clause is the fee being negotiated with the Italian club according to reports, and this may not pose any problem for the Blues as long as Schurrlle and Salah can find clubs to sign them.
Italian club Roma have agreed to pay the £43,000 weekly wages of Salah, which leaving us with Schurrle, and hopefully his agent can find him a club soon.
Reports also said Wolfsburg are willing to pay £23million for Schurrle, which gives us a glimmer of hope that something might yet happen per Cuadrado before the window closes in another ten or nine days from now.
Both players have not been able to tie down regular first-team shirts in Chelsea’s star-studded squad, and are now considered to be surplus to requirements.*Deposit £10-£200 with bet365 and gain a huge 100% bonus with bet365 – Bet Now*
