Chelsea ready sell £23m Juventus target this summer

Chelsea are prepared to sell Juan Cuadrado this summer, despite only signing the winger in the January transfer window, according to reports from the Mirror.

Cuadrado has struggled for regular first team football ever since his arrival from Fiorentina earlier this year, and the Blues are already considering letting him leave after six months.

However, the Colombia international will only be allowed to depart if an interested club pay the £23.3million sum Chelsea used to bring him to Stamford Bridge.

The 27-year-old is a target for Serie A champions Juventus, who are currently going through a squad overhaul with Carlos Tevez’s departure and Arturo Vidal’s expected switch to Bayern Munich.

Blues manager Jose Mourinho previously revealed he is focused on signing a defender this summer, with a £20million move for Everton star John Stones already being rejected by the Toffees.

Cuadrado only made 12 league appearances for the English champions last season, scoring no goals.
