Chelsea are struggling to sell on flop winger Juan Cuadrado as they are refusing to lower their £24.5m asking price, according to the Daily Express.
Reports in Italy are claiming that three top European sides have made enquiries into his availability, but have all been scared off by the sky high asking price that the Blues have placed upon his head.
Serie A duo Roma and Juventus, plus former Spanish champions Atletico Madrid have all been in touch with the Londoners, but are reluctant to meet the club’s demands for his signature.
Chelsea are apparently so desperate to get him off their books that they have even set their valuation at £2m less than they paid Fiorentina for him back in January of this year.
Last week his agent, Alessandro Lucci, insisted the player would not quit the club, although Cuadrado does have suitors abroad.
“Cuadrado is a Chelsea player, strongly backed by Mourinho who believes in him,” Lucci said.
“Juan is fine in London and is very likely to remain at Chelsea.
“He has interest from other teams but I repeat, Juan is a Chelsea player.”
The deal now looks to be a waste of time as the Blues gave up the impressive World Cup winner Andre Schurrle to snap him up.
