Juan Fernando Quintero Paniagua (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈxwan ferˈnando kinˈteɾo]; born January 18, 1993) is a Colombian professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Independiente Medellín, on loan from FC Porto.

He has been mentioned among the more coveted young players in European football by The Times of London. At the age of 19, Quintero already started to receive praise for his impressive performances during his time in Italy. During his time of the 2013 South American Youth Championship, he has been recognized as not only one of the most promising youth aspects from only South America, but the world.

Quintero has represented Colombia since he was 19, making his official debut in 2012 against Cameroon. At the 2013 South American Youth Championships, he led Colombia to their 3rd title while voted as the tournament's MVP for contributing more than any other player for his respective nation. He also took part in the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey where he gained more praise for his talents after creating a huge impact in the tournament. Quintero went on to represent Colombia in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, where he scored his first world cup goal against Côte d'Ivoire in a group stage match on June 19, 2014.

His overall size and style of play as well as his left-foot has led him to be compared to Lionel Messi.
