Three reasons Chelsea should not let Juan Cuadrado leave
Willian and Pedro registered twelve goals and eight assists in 64 combined Premier League appearances last season.
This, for their premier right sided players, is nowhere near good enough. Willian’s goals and assist records throughout his career are underwhelming, whilst Pedro has really suffered with the chance of league and increased physicality.
Chelsea’s options on the right are hardly offering all that their team needs. Cuadrado is not a prolific goal-getter or assist man himself, either, but the winger will provide a different threat.
He will hug the touchline, stretch the game and create space centrally for Oscar and/or Fabregas to roam.
Cuadrado is a different card in Conte’s box of tricks and it would be foolish to overlook him much longer. He gives them an extra attacking dimension.
This is not to mention the fact that the market for wingers is currently looking pretty bare, how would they even replace Cuadrado?
