The agent of Chelsea flop Juan Cuadrado is believed to have contacted La Liga giants Barcelona over a possible deal to rescue him from Stamford Bridge, according to Spanish publication Don Balon.
The 27-year-old joined the Blues a year ago, but failed to impress during his short spell at the club before being shipped out on loan to Juventus over the summer, where he has managed the platy return of just two goals in 24 appearances.
A permanent move to Turin had been mentioned, but talk over a deal has since stalled, and his agent, Alessandro Lucci, has moved to contact the decision makers at the Nou Camp over a possible move to the club.
At 27, the Colombian international will still feel as though he has something to offer at the top level, though there swill inevitably be concerns over whether he will be worth the outlay that he will no doubt believe he can still demand.
