Juan Cuadrado's list of suitors grows even longer

Where there were two, now there are three.  It used to be just Roma and Inter Milan who were supposedly vying for Juan Cuadrado's services, but now, according to the Oracle of the Transfer Market, Gianluca Di Marzio, a new contender from a new country has emerged.

Atletico Madrid is trying to keep up with Real Madrid and Barcelona on the transfer market. The Colchoneros are interested in Chelsea's Cuadrado, the winger is also being pursued by Inter and Roma.


Of course there's nothing new about Chelsea dealing with Atlético Madrid.  Over the last few years, we've been linked with just about every single member of Diego Simeone's squad, and there have been plenty of links pointing in the reverse direction as well.  So, this could just be further idle chatter along similar lines.  Give it a few days, and somebody will come up with a swap story involving all of Antoine Griezmann, Filipe Luis, Juan Cuadrado, Petr Čech, Joao Miranda, and, say, Koke?

I'd say there's a greater chance of that happening (the story, that is, not the actual multi-player deal) than Chelsea getting rid of a £27m signing after just 6 months.  I've been wrong before though...

By the way, how come no one has bothered to ask Cuadrado about all this yet?  International duty usually means an increase in player quotes and media contact, no?  Or has he provided beyond boring and standard answers, not worthy of reporting?  Or am I just missing them?
