Despite the huge amount spent to sign him on, and the euphoria that heralded his arrival at the club, Cuadrado is believed to be engineering a move away from Chelsea. According to reports from the Metro, Cuadrado is believed to want to leave Chelsea after just five months. We might be inclined to believe that this is true with the reality on ground. This is because Juan Cuadrado has failed to impress since he has been signed.
Costing a princely sum of €36.6m, Cuadrado has appeared just 13 times for the blues, costing so far €2.8m per match. And for such an amount so far, his performance has not measured to what we had expected, coming on the back keels of a splendid performance at the world cup and further enthralling performances at his former club Fiorentina before he moved to Chelsea.
Should he engineer a move away from the blues in this coming transfer window, he won’t be missed. Hopefully the club would be able to recoup a significant percentage of the amount spent to sign him in the first instance. However, like all late bloomers who come to the Premier league and are confronted with the rigors and extreme competitiveness, he might come good come during the 2015-2016 season and might spearhead the successful defense of the premier league title by the blues. Either way, Mourinho will be expected to take a decision on him soon and then we will know if the wonder man of Colombia will be staying and fighting for his spot in the first team or he would take the easy way out and leave.
