Juan Cuadrado is not yet officially a Chelsea player, but that seems like a minor formality at this point.

The winger is due in London soon for a medical, and has most likely played his final match for Fiorentina, who take on Genoa in Serie A action later today.  A few hours ago, he took to Instagram to bid farewell to the city, the club, and, above all, the fans who supported him the last two and a half seasons.

I speak very little Italian, though there are enough commonalities with the English language to be able to figure out the gist of the message.  Plus, we've got Google Translate, which is always helpful and often amusing.

Florence will remain forever in my heart. Extraordinary people. Fans full of passion.

La Viola were the team that launched me and gave me the opportunity to grow thanks to a great company and great companions.

Now I expect a new road. New emotions. New objectives.

But always with Florence in the heart!
Thank you all!
Juan

Aww.  That's very nice.  (And even some nice comments left by fans as well!)
