Barcelona interested in Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado



Chelsea transfer: Cuadrado is a wanted man in Italy

Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge for a while now.

The Colombian winger has clearly failed to adapt to life in the Premier League. Cuadrado joined Chelsea in January 2015 for a fee of 23 million pounds and was then loaned out at the end of the season.

Cuadrado managed to impress during his loan spell at Juventus and their CEO Giuseppe Marotta previously stated he wants to keep hold of Cuadrado. However, there was no agreement and Cuadrado returned to Chelsea this summer. After training with the Blues under Conte during pre-season, Cuadrado was again sent out on loan to Juventus at the start of this season.

The 28-year-old clearly has no future at Chelsea and needs to sort out a permanent transfer soon. According to Goal, Barcelona are interested in signing the Chelsea winger. They are reporting that the Spanish giants have always liked the player and want to sign him as a right wing-back.

Barcelona are not impressed by Aleix Vidal and Héctor Bellerín is not available at the moment. Therefore, the Chelsea winger is an ideal option for them. Barcelona are not willing to break the bank for him and will offer around 20 million Euros for his services. Considering his situation at Chelsea, that would be a very reasonable offer. Although the Blues will have to take a loss, it is a good offer and they might accept it.
