Chelsea boss steals a march on Prem rivals with Cuadrado swoop
CHELSEA are ready to splash the cash and steal Juan Cuadrado from under their rivals’ noses.
The Fiorentina winger has a £27million release clause in his contract with the Italian outfit, which has put off Manchester United and Barcelona.
But Chelsea are hoping to offload fringe men Mohamed Salah and Andre Schurrle to raise the cash to land Colombian Cuadrado. A return to Germany seems inevitable for Schurrle, whose erratic finishing has annoyed Blues boss Jose Mourinho.
Struggling Borussia Dortmund are keen on him, but Wolfsburg are considering shelling out £23m to get him first.
Wolfsburg are this season’s surprise package and are in second spot behind Bayern Munich.
Salah has hardly featured this term and could be set for a switch to Turkish football with Besiktas.
