Alessandro Lucci: Cuadrado will stay at Chelsea

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.
