Good evening blues and welcome to Tuesday evenings transfer news update from CFCnet, where we take a look at the potential arrivals and departures at Stamford Bridge this summer.
First off, Radamel Falcao may finally be officially joining…… but not until July 20th, according to reports in Colombia. Although it is stated that he has signed and agreed the move to Chelsea reportedly earning 130k a week.
The reports suggest that he will officially be unveiled in Canada later in July, where Chelsea will be training in pre-season.
Yesterday it was reported that Atletico Madrid attacker Arda Turan wants to leave Madrid and his agent is in talks with 3 or 4 clubs. Further to that today, news is surfacing that his club of choice is Chelsea, according to many UK press outlets.
It is expected that a fee of around £29 million is being talked about but Chelsea could bring that fee down with Filipe Luis going the other way and returning to Madrid, who do want him.
I’m not overly keen on forking out £30 million for a 28-year old but the man has extreme talent and if we could involve Luis in the deal, it might be more feasible.
Finally, it seems fairly apparent that Juan Cuadrado will be leaving Stamford Bridge already. It has been talked about all summer but it seems this rumour is now gathering solid pace and Cuadrado could be on his way out, especially if Turan does arrive.
Its been suggested that Inter Milan want Cuadrado and have offered a loan with forced option to buy. This has surfaced from reliable source Di Marzio and may well happen.
That’s it for now, but remember to follow my Twitter here for the very latest Blues news @cfcneteditor
