Does he get a raw deal or simply not up to Chelsea’s lofty standards?
This is the question we have been asking ourselves here in the tavern but most of our Chelsea regulars are favouring the latter.
Cuadrado has of course only performed 12 times for the Blues in the Premier League so far after arriving from Fiorentina in January but in that time he has flattered to deceive.
Lighting up the World Cup last summer for Colombia and currently away with the national side at the Copa America, Cuadrado seems to be struggling to adapt to the English game.
While Jose Mourinho and the club chiefs will claim he is going nowhere this summer, we’ve learnt in recent seasons that not everything the Blues boss says can be taken as red and the latest in The Express is that Inter Milan are interested in landing Cuadrado this summer.
The fact of the matter is that Chelsea’s standards are so high at the minute that anybody performing beneath the maximum level is quickly found out by the Blues’ crowd.
Chelsea are now more than used to splashing lavish fees on new arrivals so we don’t think many Blues fans will be losing much sleep about potentially losing Cuadrado so soon.
