Colombian superstar could prove too expensive for Stamford Bridge outfit…
The transfer window slams shut in just seven days and CaughtOffside checks out six players José Mourinho could take a look at should Chelsea fail in their pursuit of Fiorentina ace Juan Cuadrado.
With the Italians demanding big money for Cuadrado, according to Goal, the Blues may have to try out some alternative attacking midfield options…
1) Douglas Costa
Shakhtar’s Brazilian winger has said Chelsea would be a “dream”, according to the Express, and may be on his way to Stamford Bridge sooner rather than later.
Costa has made a name for himself playing in a side which has made a habit of upsetting the odds on the European stage, as well as dominating the Ukrainian Premier League, winning the past five titles consecutively.
