DEAL DONE: Chelsea agree signing £23m Manchester United target
Chelsea are on the verge of signing Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado in a reported £23.3m. The deal is expected to complete by the weekend subject to a medical. The Colombian who had a dazzling World Cup was heavily linked with Manchester United throughout the summer but despite intense speculations he stayed put at the Florence based side.
BBC have reported that the deal would eventually be £26.8m, the figure which matches Cuadrado’s release clause. Fiorentina were earlier reluctant to sell their prized asset but had to accept the huge money on offer. The deal will also see Mohammed Salah head the other way on a six month loan deal but the Blues will continue to pay the salary of the Egyptian.
Fiorentina manager Vincenzo Montella has confirmed the signing, “Juan Cuadrado has signed for Chelsea, it’s a shame but I’m happy for him, he’s at a top club”
Cuadrado’s arrival also means that 24-year-old German Andre Schurrle is almost certain to leave before Monday’s transfer deadline. German club Wolfsburg have opened discussions on a potential £22m deal.
