Special player Cuadrado will be a hit at Chelsea, says Thierry Henry

Thierry Henry believes Juan Cuadrado will be a hit at Chelsea, with the Fiorentina winger poised to complete a €33 million move to Stamford Bridge before the transfer deadline.

Fiorentina head coach Vincenzo Montella confirmed on Friday that Cuadrado’s move to the Premier League leaders is all but completed, with the player himself posting an emotional goodbye to the Viola on Instagram.

And Henry is sure Cuadrado will showcase his qualities in England once his move is finalised, with Andre Schurrle set to join Wolfsburg to make way for the incoming Colombian.

"Everybody saw the World Cup, the way he performed – he’s a special player," Henry told Sky Sports.

"He can beat anyone at any time and he’s a proper winger also – that’s something you don’t see often now, guys that want to go down the line and beat people and cross.

"That’s what you want if you’re a striker, so I think he will be – if he comes to Chelsea – a special player.

"He won’t surprise people because everybody saw him at the World Cup, but he’s a special talent."
