Barcelona target Chelsea flop Juan Cuadrado

Juan Cuadrado news

Cuadrado wanted at Barca

Barcelona are apparently interested in sealing a summer deal for Chelsea wing-back Juan Cuadrado. The Colombian international spent the previous season on loan with Juventus.

Cuadrado joined the Blues from Fiorentina in January 2015, with a view to securing a regular role in the first-team at Stamford Bridge.

However, he failed to adapt to the English style of play, and was subsequently shipped out on loan to the Old Lady for the 2015/16 campaign.

According to Spanish outlet Fichajes, Barca are looking into a deal for the Colombian star with Dani Alves closing in on a move to Juventus.

The 27-year-old has the potential to play as either an attacking right-back or wing-back, and this is said to have caught the interest of the La Liga champions.

Nevertheless, they would have to fight off interest from the Old Lady, who are also keen on securing a permanent contract for the former Viola man.
