La Liga Giants Targeting Chelsea Flop

According to the Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo, La Liga giants Atletico Madrid want to secure the services of Chelsea flop Juan Cuadrado.

Argentinian tactician Diego Simeone has taken a fancy to the Colombian and could get Atletico to make a move for him in the summer.

Colombian international is currently on loan at Serie A champions Juventus, and the Italian media have flirted with the idea of Old Lady buying him for €20m, a verbal agreement with the Blues, or trying to get the fee much lower.

That cheeky approach stood more chance of success before Antonio Conte was named as Chelsea manager, and before interest from others began to be taken more seriously. The idea that Juve may not call the shots on this is a relatively new one in Italy.

Rather than the previous agreement coming do, Chelsea may be able to argue it should go up.

It is believed that incoming manager Conte wants to offload Colombian midfielder in the summer, but Chelsea and Atletico have a very good relationship and it could help La Liga giants to lure midfielder at Vicente Calderon.
