AC Milan close in on Chelsea attacker

AC Milan are closing on the signing of Chelsea forward Juan Cuadrado according to reports in Italy.

Gazzetta dello Sport claim that the Rossonieri want to take Cuadrado to the San Siro this summer as Chelsea are willing to let the Columbian leave for around €30million.

AC Milan are thought to be willing to pay, although want to sign the attacker on an initial one-year loan first.

The 28-year old moved to Chelsea in January 2015 for €28million from fellow Serie A club Fiorentina, but failed to make an impression at Stamford Bridge. He was loaned out to Juventus last season where he helped the club to their fifth consecutive Serie A title.

Cuadrado shares an agent with AC Milan manager Vicenzo Montella, who recently flew to London to discuss a move with the Premier League club.

Antonio Conte has previously claimed that Cuadrado is part of his plans for the new season, but could now be prepared to allow him to leave.
