Blues deal imminent as Colombian bids farewell to old club.
Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado is edging ever closer to joining Chelsea after posting a farwell message to his old club’s fans on social media, the Daily Mail reports.
The Colombian international is expected to sign for the Blues for around £26m, and should make an exciting purchase for Jose Mourinho’s squad as they push for the Premier League title and other honours.
Rumours of a deal have been hotting up in recent days, and a move now looks all but certain after this post from the player himself.
“‘Florence will always be in my heart,” he said. “The people are extraordinary. The fans full of passion. The Viola launched my career and gave me the opportunity to grow also thanks to a great club and exceptional teammates. ‘Now a new journey awaits me. New emotions. New objective. But always with Florence in my heart. Thank you to everyone! Juan.”
