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.
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.
