Having shipped out the likes of David Luiz whilst bringing in proven world-class talent in Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas, Jose Mourinho was hailed a transfer window wizard last summer.
The former Real Madrid and Porto manager was at it again in the recently closed January shopping month, with Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah, two outcasts at Stamford Bridge, sent off to pastures new in order to accommodate Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado.
Chelsea fans got a brief sighting of their Deadline Day signing when he made his 10-minute debut against Aston Villa at the weekend. However, Mourinho handed the 26-year-old his full debut tonight against Everton and, despite it being 0-0 and only half-time, the Colombian international has impressed the Blues faithful greatly.
If the forward continues with his level of performance from his first 45 at Stamford Bridge, then I’m sure the Chelsea supporters will forgive him for supporting Manchester United…
Cuadrado, Willian and Hazard’s acceleration is disgusting. Burst of pace is unreal
