Multiple outlets report that Chelsea have made an enquiry for the Colombian winger, who has a £26.8million buy-out clause in his contract.

Jose Mourinho has already confirmed he will allow Salah to leave this window (more below), as long as he is given the money to bring in a replacement. Cuadrado, 26, was a target of Manchester United during the summer and can play on the left or right wing.


Wolfsburg are getting ready to make a £23m bid for German winger Andre Schurrle.

The World Cup winner has been in and out of the Chelsea team all season, struggling to impress when given the chance ahead of Willian. But despite him currently being a reserve, he is still rated by Jose Mourinho and the Blues will demand £30m for him to return to Germany.

Roma are confident they can bring in Mohamed Salah on loan for the rest of the season for £500,000, with a a view to buying him permanently for £12m in the summer, according to the London Evening Standard. Since arriving at Chelsea last January for £11m, the Egyptian has started just six matches for Jose Mourinho. Besiktas, Inter Milan and Spartak Moscow are also interested.


Jose Mourinho has revealed he turned down the chance to sign Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria this summer. The Chelsea manager was put off by their steep wage demands and revealed he didn't want them anyway.
