Chelsea are on the verge signing Fiorentina ace Juan Cuadrado. According to reports in BBC Sport, the Blues are on the brink of finalising a £23.3m deal for the Colombian, a fee which, when coupled with add-ons, would become £26.8m – the player’s release clause amount. It is believed that Cuadrado has already agreed to personal terms with the west Londoners and that the two sides are only completing the final formalities for the deal now. It is believed that Cuadrado may even have a medical today itself, at London, and may even become available for the Blues’ Premier League encounter against Manchester City tomorrow.

Meanwhile, it is also reported that the deal will see Chelsea flop Mohamed Salah moving to Fiorentina on loan for the rest of the season.

Reports in The Daily Express have revealed that if Real do manage to sign Gaya in the near future, it would make it easy for the Red Devils to sign their long term target Fabio Coentrao.

Raiola was quoted in The Daily Express, saying: "If he [Hamsik] leaves Napoli, he would be able to play for any team in the world. If I had to recommend a player, it would be Hamsik.
