“Fernando Torres is the obvious answer, and while his transfer fee was more than twice that of Juan Cuadrado, his impact was three or four times more telling than the Colombian’s,” states Football365.

“Torres can at least claim to have played a huge part in the club’s Champions and Europa League wins; Cuadrado started four Premier League games and assisted one goal in their run to the title after arriving in January 2015.

“He was loaned out to Juventus that summer, then again in August 2016, and left Stamford Bridge to make his Turin move permanent in May 2017.”
