Barcelona are in the search of superstars to stir up the squad at the Camp Nou and have now stumbled into the Chelsea man currently busy in Turin.
Luis Enrique’s side created history in the Champions League earlier this month coming back from a 4-0 deficit to knock PSG out of the competition with a 6-1 victory in the second leg.
However, they failed to take that momentum into the domestic league where they were beaten away from home by Deportivo la Coruna, pushing them into the second place in the points table.
The Catalan giants are currently in the second place in the table, 2 points off their nemesis Real Madrid at the top, having played an extra game, and have to be at their best to pip them to their third consecutive La Liga title.
However, the manager Luis Enrique is set to leave the club at the end of the season, irrespective of their end to the campaign, but he is not leaving before planning for the future.
Though he is linked with an exit, Barcelona have already been looking at players to add to their squad even under their new manager and a number of big names have been doing the rounds recently,
And the latest name to join the long list is Chelsea star Juan Cuadrado.
Yes, the Colombian international is a player registered with the English outfit but he has spent just half a season at the club, since his move to the Bridge back in 2015, making just 13 unproductive first team appearances.
He has been an integral part of the squad at Juventus under Allegri where he is currently in the middle of the three-year loan spell.
However, Barcelona are now set to make a move for the 28-year old this summer.
According to reports from Spanish outlet Don Balon if they miss out on their top transfer target Hector Bellerin this summer.
The Catalan giants are convinced that Bellerin is the answer to their full-back problems and are ready to lure him back to his hometown but they are facing stiff competition from former boss Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
Bellerin could reportedly be tempted to move to the Etihad leaving Barcelona in search of another player and they are now looking at the Chelsea star in Turin as a possible replacement.
Cuadrado is only a backup option but if Barcelona are ready to stump up the cash, Chelsea will be more than willing to let him go, having failed to integrate him into the squad at the Bridge.
Do you think Barcelona will sign Cuadrado this summer?
