Speaking after his side’s 2-0 Coppa Italia quarter-final victory over Roma, he promised supporters that he would not be dwelling on the past and will continue to look forward.
Montella, who was quoted by Goal.com, said: “We can say that we have forgotten about Juan Cuadrado. Unfortunately he has gone, but before leaving we wished him good luck.
“We celebrated with him because he is going to play in a great environment, but we must look at the present and, above all, to the future with the players we’ve got, who give us ample opportunities.”
Cuadrado established himself as a key player for the Viola after joining them from Udinese in 2012. He played 106 games in two and a half seasons, scoring 26 goals in all competitions.
The 26-year-old starred in the World Cup last summer, scoring in the win over Japan and helping his side reach the quarter-finals, where they were narrowly beaten by hosts Brazil. He now has 37 caps, with five goals.
On a busy day at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea allowed both Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah to leave the club to make way for Cuadrado, with the latter joining Fiorentina on loan until the end of the season.
