Cuadrado is set to be targeted by Madrid if Vazquez leaves the Spanish capital

Since coming through the youth academy at the Santiago Bernabeu, Vazquez has failed to hold down a first team place with Zinedine Zidane’s side thus far.

The winger has made 27 appearances in the league so far this campaign, however a large part of these have been from the substitute’s bench.

Since moving to Juventus from Chelsea in the summer of 2015, Colombian international Cuadrado has managed to clock up a total of 13 goals and 24 assists in 108 appearances for the Old Lady, a formidable return for a player of his quality and position.

Should Vazquez end up leaving Madrid, it’ll be interesting to see if Los Blancos end up making a move to try and bring Cuadrado to the Spanish capital.
