The winger has struggled to settle in West London
Juan Cuadrado’s agent Alessandro Lucci claims that the attacking midfielder will still be a Chelsea player next season.
The Colombian international has found it difficult to make an impact in the Premier League, following his £27 million move from Fiorentina back in January.
Rumours have even suggested that the Blues‘ boss Jose Mourinho has grown impatient with Cuadrado and is looking to sell the winger.
A return to Italy was apparently on the cards
Due to poor form, Cuadrado was linked with a move back to Serie A, most recently with Italian champions Juventus and Roberto Mancini‘s Inter Milan.
However, it looks as if he will stay at Stamford Bridge; as his fellow Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah has admitted he may be staying at Cuadrado’s former club Fiorentina for another season-long loan.
When speaking to Italian media outlet Tuttomercatoweb, Lucci said: “I read with amazement in some English and Italian newspaper about imaginary figures and agents associated with Cuadrado, so I think it’s right to clarify the situation.”
He also added: “Cuadrado is a Chelsea player, strongly backed by Mourinho who believes in him. Juan is fine in London and is very likely to remain at Chelsea. He has interest from other teams but I repeat, Juan is a Chelsea player.”
Cuadrado is yet to score for the Premier League champions Chelsea since joining them in the winter transfer window.
