Milan are going all in to reunite Juan Cuadrado with Vincenzo Montella, especially if Chelsea allow him to leave on loan with option to buy.
The Colombia international winger had his best days at Fiorentina under Coach Montella.
His confidence evaporated after a move to Chelsea in January 2015 and he returned for a successful loan spell at Juventus last season.
According to Tuttosport, Milan are the strongest contenders for Cuadrado and are going all-in for the 28-year-old.
Chelsea are prepared to let Cuadrado go on loan with a mandatory option to buy for around €30m after agent Alessandro Lucci flew in to London yesterday for negotiations, begging to be released.
This is the same sum the Rossoneri hope to reap by selling Carlos Bacca to West Ham United and, crucially, would allow Milan to spread the payments over more than one year.
A return to Juventus or even a move to Inter are also options for Cuadrado, who is desperate to stay in Serie A.
