The Colombian arrived at Stamford Bridge from Fiorentina in February for £26.1 million as a supposed upgrade on the departing Andre Schurrle.
However, in the second half of the league season, Cuadrado played just 312 minutes of football, contributing no goals or assists, per WhoScored.com.
Recent reports have suggested that he may be looking to return to Serie A, having failed to settle in west London, and Inter Milan are lining up a £22 million bid for the 27-year-old, per Tuttosport (h/t Joe Short of the Daily Express).
Inter have seemingly missed out on Palermo's Paulo Dybala, per Short, and San Siro boss Roberto Mancini is now apparently lining up Cuadrado instead.
In all likelihood, however, Blues boss Jose Mourinho will keep hold of Cuadrado into next season, having previously suggested the winger needs time to adapt to the Premier League, per Luke Kenton of the Daily Telegraph: "He needs time. I know Italy and I know the difference between Italy and England. His formation, his development, his experience – everything was in Italy. Stability, time, integration – I think we will see the best Cuadrado next year."
The player himself certainly does not see his fledgling Chelsea career coming to an end so soon, if his reaction to the Blues' league win is anything to go by:
Chelsea clearly rate Cuadrado very highly given the transfer fee they paid for him, and they will surely not offload him after only a few months at the club.
He is a hugely versatile attacking talent who could become a stalwart of the Chelsea team in years to come, and they would be foolish to get rid of him having barely given him a chance to shine.
Juve Target Oscar, Antonio Rudiger Eyed
The Blues are set to come under pressure from Juventus in the summer as the Serie A champions are reportedly targeting Chelsea attacker Oscar.
According to Tuttosport (h/t talkSPORT), the Brazilian is at the top of Juve's summer wish list as boss manager Massimiliano Allegri looks "to add more flare and creativity to his side."
Juventus have had a terrific season thus far, winning the domestic double and reaching the Champions League final: They face Barcelona on June 6 in Berlin.
However, they have often relied on a solid defensive unit, with creative options lacking further forward, a problem Oscar could potentially solve.
Furthermore, for the right price, Chelsea may just be prepared to sell Oscar on, as he was not an indispensable component for the Blues in the second half of the season, playing a full 90 minutes just twice in the league in 2015, per WhoScored.
Indeed, Bleacher Report's Garry Hayes presents a scenario in which Eden Hazard moves into the centre of the park for Chelsea, leaving Oscar warming the bench:

However, despite falling down the pecking order somewhat, Chelsea and Mourinho would surely only think about selling Oscar if they stood to make a substantial profit on the £19.35 million they paid for the 23-year-old.
At the other end of the pitch, Chelsea are reportedly eyeing Stuttgart centre-back Antonio Rudiger as Mourinho plans for the future of his back line.
John Terry had a fantastic 2014-15 season, but at 34 years old, the Englishman's career is surely drawing to a close. Gary Cahill seems to have dropped off in form somewhat, with young Kurt Zouma coming through the ranks to earn a first-team spot.
The German Rudiger would come in as a potential long-term option to partner Zouma in the centre of defence, and Chelsea will surely be his preferred destination over other potential suitors West Ham United, Monaco, Wolfsburg and Porto.
