Juan Cuadrado is reportedly very unlikely to stay at Chelsea. The player wants to return to Italy, regardless of which club will want to sign him.
According to Fabrizio Romano, from CalcioMercato, Cuadrado has already told Antonio Conte he wants to go back to the Serie A, where he feels more adapted. The player asked the club to consider all the offers for him.
Three clubs are said to be interested: Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan.
Juve had already made a €25m offer, which was turned down by Chelsea, as they demand at least €30m. Now the Old Lady have other business to be done, as after signing Pjaca, they will sort the matters of Paul Pogba and Gonzalo Higuain first. They will only get back to the negotiations for Cuadrado in late August.
Inter have reportedly made contacts, but didn’t get any further. They have Cuadrado as a plan b in case they fail to land Gabriel Jesus from Palmeiras, despite them being very different players.
And Milan are still thinking of making an offer, as they want the player on loan with an option to buy. They haven’t had any talks with Chelsea yet, but are aware of the conditions to make the signing.
The journalist says that the only possibility for Cuadrado to stay in London is if Conte convinces him. Otherwise, his departure is quite certain.
