Chelsea fans react on Twitter to Cuadrado and Schurrle deals

Andre Schurrle Germany

How Chelsea's Twitter-based supporters reacted to the Juan Cuadrado signing and preceding Andre Schurrle sale.

With Juan Cuadrado joining Chelsea from Fiorentina following Andre Schurrle’s £22 million departure for Wolsburg, Blues fans took to Twitter at the transfer deadline to give their take on the two deals.

Signing on a deal until 2019 for a reported £23.3 million, Cuadrado arrives at Stamford Bridge to much fanfare, having starred in Serie A for the Florence-based outfit over the past three seasons.

Moving from Udinese in the summer of 2013 for £17.6 million, following an initial season-long loan, the Colombian winger racked up 26 goals in 106 total appearances during his time with la Viola, while also recording the joint-most assists at the World Cup in Brazil with four.

Schurrle, meanwhile, made the £18 million switch from Bayer Leverkusen to north London in June 2013, before going on to hit eight goals in 30 Premier League games during his debut campaign.

However, the German World Cup-winner saw his opportunities limited during his second term at the club, and had made just five top-flight starts prior to his return to the Bundesliga to sanction Cuadrado’s purchase.

With both moves standing out as two of the most significant of what was a somewhat quiet transfer window, here’s how Chelsea fans reacted to their club’s dealings.
