The four-time Premier League champions are done in the transfer market, with the clearing out, as they have confirmed the departures of Juan Cuadrado and Marco Marin to Juventus and Trabzonspor respectively – both deals are a season-long loan deals.
Juan Cuadrado was sent to Turin following his abysmal performance for Chelsea during his short stint at Stamford Brige. He was acquired from Fiorentina in the January of this year for £23.3 million on the back drop of his stellar show-offs for Columbia during last year’s world cup staged at Brazil. He is now back to Seria A but with the Old Lady.
Meanwhile, the 26-year-old German international, Marco Marin, was sold to Chelsea from Werder Bremen and was sent on loan spanning three seasons before he returned to London to join his parent Club Chelsea. However, he was deemed surplus to requirement by Jose Mourinho – Marin has joined Turkish outfit Trabzonspor in a season-long loan deal with the option of a permanent deal upon the expiration of the loan.
As reported by the Telegraph, the Blues are preparing a fourth bid of £33 million for Everton hard-tackling defender, John Stones, it is understood that Chelsea will only up their bid by £2 million despite Everton’s £40 million valuation for the player.
The 21-year-old England international may have to force his way out of Goodison Park with a transfer request.
