However, he has been able to gulp up to 49 League games for the Scudetto holder and despite Conte’s desire to keep him at Stamford Bridge, the winger opted for a move three-year loan deal with Allegri’s men.
Speaking to JTV, Cuadrado revealed that he forced his move out of Chelsea
‘It was exciting to see,’.
‘To see the stands and the noise the fans make, I’m excited by the public’s support.
‘I did everything to come back, and thanks to God I’m here. I’m very happy.’
Conte has a plethora of options on the wing. Willian, Moses, Hazard and Pedro are exception player and have not made the absence of the silky Cuadrado to be felt.
Cuadrado plays direct football and is highly skillful. The South-American can play from both flanks or behind the striker but he is very weak defensively.
