Chelsea attacker's agent looking for move away from Stamford Bridge

Juan Cuadrado joined Chelsea in January with high expectations, but has failed to make an impression since his switch from Serie A. Gianluca DiMarzio has been reporting that the player's agent would prefer a move away from the club for several weeks, and on Sunday, the Italian website suggests that he was at the Champions League final on Saturday, looking for suitors.

As before, DiMarzio suggests several sides having interest in the player, including Roma, Inter Milan, and several other clubs which have been left unnamed. I'd have to believe that none of these clubs would be looking to pay anything close to what Chelsea did in January, so it would seem a safe assumption that any transfer would involve a loan.

With Jose Mourinho confirming this morning that Chelsea were only looking to add two or three players to the group, I'd assume he wasn't expecting to lose many bench options. The Blues have been linked to quite a few attacking midfield options already, and also have Bertrand Traore, whom Mourinho would reportedly love to keep if he qualifies for a work permit. Should that happen, it could be an easy decision.
