Juan Cuadrado's agent has reiterated that the Colombia international will stay at Chelsea beyond the end of the summer transfer window, despite conceding the player does have admirers.

Cuadrado joined the Blues on deadline day in the January transfer window for £23.3m ($36m) according to BBC Sport but the 27-year-old has endured an uncertain start to life in west London.

The Daily Mirror have reported that Chelsea are already looking to offload Cuadrado this summer after the player made just four starts on his way to picking up a Premier League winner's medal in his maiden campaign.

Agent Alessandro Lucci has continually claimed his client's future remains at Chelsea and the representative has again moved to quash speculation regarding Cuadrado's future despite admitting that rival clubs are interested.

"Much to my amazement, I read in some English and Italian newspapers about imaginary figures and agents associated with Cuadrado, so I think it is right to clarify the situation," agent Alessandro Lucci told Tuttomercatoweb.

"Cuadrado is a Chelsea player, who [Jose] Mourinho strongly wanted just over five months ago and the coach truly believes in him.

"He has many admirers but I reiterate that Juan is a Chelsea player. And the future will be decided by me and him, there is no need of any tutor. I hope to have been clear and the future of Juan, I repeat, will be decided by his agent and intermediary."

The addition of Cuadrado in January has been widely questioned after Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho opted to part with Andre Schurrle in order to bring in the winger, who excelled at the 2014 World Cup with Colombia.

It is a view shared by former Stamford Bridge winger Pat Nevin, who said prior to the climax of the campaign that Cuadrado had done "nothing" during the start of his career in the Premier League.

"Cuadrado has come in and not done anything near what they'd hope he do," Nevin told Newstalk. "It is an odd one. You got rid of Schurrle who was very useful to come in now and again. Cuadrado comes in and does nothing. So that doesn't look like the best decision ever."
