Milan are the new favourites to sign Juan Cuadrado and are reportedly in direct talks with Chelsea.
The Colombia international spent last season on loan at Juventus and rediscovered his confidence, never quite settling in the Premier League.
He seems eager for a return to Serie A and played his best football at Fiorentina under Vincenzo Montella, who is now the Coach of Milan.
According to Sky Sport Italia and Calciomercato.com, the Rossoneri are the favourites for Cuadrado due to this rapport and the chance to guarantee regular first team football.
Milan are having a cash-flow crisis, as the Chinese takeover is still not finalised and there are problems selling Carlos Bacca to raise funds.
They hope to be allowed to sign Cuadrado on loan with a mandatory option to buy for a total of just under €30m.
His agent, Alessandro Lucci, is in London for negotiations and to ask for a loan deal.
