Barcelona leave the Juan Cuadrado race to Man United, buying Douglas instead [Sport]
For much of the past couple of weeks we have heard that Barcelona and Manchester United were in a two-horse race to sign Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado.
The Colombian winger looks set to leave The Viola this summer and reports in Spain suggested that Manchester United had made a bid of around 40 million euros.
Today, Sport reveal that Barcelona are no longer interested in Cuadrado and have shifted their attention to Sao Paulo full back Douglas.
Talks are advanced between Barcelona and Sao Paulo with the suggestion that the Catalans will pay a seven million euro fee.
Barcelona gave up on Cuadrado due to the high fee demanded by Fiorentina, leaving Manchester United as the only side supposedly in for the Colombian World Cup star.
And, if Barcelona do not seal a deal for Douglas they will move for Leo from Flamengo.
So, does this mean Manchester United will now seal the deal for Cuadrado?
Or, has the Colombian run out of options completely since reports in England suggest Manchester United are not as keen as they think in Spain and Italy…
