The winger could be arriving at Stamford Bridge soon…
Chelsea have been heavily linked to Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado in the last week, with a move for the 26-year-old looking more and more likely.
However, do the Blues really need him? Manager Jose Mourinho seems to have created an almost perfect team at Stamford Bridge right now, and a new winger might not actually improve them. They already have Andre Schurrle, Mohamed Salah, Willian and Eden Hazard who can play out wide.
However, the World Cup star could improve their starting XI, even if only slightly. His direct running and sheer pace could add a lot to their attacking play, where they don’t currently have anyone with the same speed as the Colombian.
Here is how the Stamford Bridge outfit could line up with the Colombia international in the team…
GK) Thibaut Courtois
The Belgian has managed to knock Petr Cech off his perch since arriving, and is one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
RB) Branislav Ivanovic
Despite starting at the club as a centre-back, the 30-year-old has grown in to one of the best full-backs in the Premier League.
LB) Cesar Azpilicueta
Another who started in different position, this time as a left-back. He has kept news signing Filipe Luis out of the team this season.
CB) John Terry
The legendary Blues captain is still going strong at the age of 34-years-old.
CB) Gary Cahill
Cahill completes what is one of the best defences in the world.
