Juan Cuadrado

New Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says Colombia winger Juan Cuadrado is part of his plans at Stamford Bridge. Cuadrado, 28, shone in Serie A and the 2014 World Cup before joining the Blues for £23.3m from Fiorentina in February 2015, but failed to score in 13 games. He was loaned to Juventus last season, scoring four goals in 28 appearances to help them to the league and cup double. “I wanted him when I was Juventus coach. He will come back very soon and train and play with us,” said Conte.
