Inter offer an escape for Juan Cuadrado?

After a lackluster move from Fiorentina to Chelsea in January, Cuadrado might have the chance to return to Italy.

When a player moves to a different country, it usually takes time to adapt to the culture, language, and league. At bigger clubs players have less time to adapt before they can be deemed a failure and shipped off. When Juan Cuadrado moved from Fiorentina to Chelsea in the January transfer market, most were not expecting an immediate impact but there was some disappointment with him performances.

12 appearances saw the Colombian winger only record one assist and with Mourinho looking at Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann, he might be on the chopping block. Daily Mail (take that as you will) reports that Inter are one of three Italian clubs looking to bring him back to Serie A, the others being Napoli and Roma.

Seeing as Chelsea just spent around €32m to bring Cuadrado to the club, it seems hard to believe that they would be willing to let him go already. It is also pretty hard to believe that Inter would shell out something around €30m for the winger given the club's financial difficulties. But given Thohir's promise to invest this transfer market, if Chelsea do buy Griezmann and are willing to sell Cuadrado (maybe for a little less than what they paid for him) it could happen.

What do you think? Would you be interested in seeing Cuadrado wearing black and blue? Or do you think that there is no way Chelsea will sell him this soon?
