CHELSEA have signed Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado in a deal thought to be worth around £26.8m.

The Colombia international replaces Andre Schurrle, who left Stamford Bridge for Wolfsburg earlier today.

Cuadrado told Chelsea’s official website: “I am very happy and thankful for this opportunity I’ve been given.

“This is a great club and honestly it is like a dream to join the Chelsea family and to know that the manager believes in me. I’m happy.”
