Catalan press confirm Man United’s €40m offer for Juan Cuadrado
- August 12, 2014
The word coming out the English media is that Manchester United have not made a move for Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado.
Sport and El Mundo Deportivo, the two foremost sports papers in Barcelona believe differently and have confirmed again on Tuesday that Manchester United are indeed chasing Barcelona for the Colombian World Cup star.
Sport confirm that Manchester United have made an offer amounting to 40 million euros for Cuadrado, including incentives for The Viola depending on appearances and trophies won.
But, the Serie A side are waiting until they receive a formal offer from Barcelona before they return to Manchester United with an answer.
Barcelona will approach Fiorentina for Cuadrado but their move remains somewhat stalled as they have no takers so far for Brazilian right back Dani Alves.
El Mundo Deportivo report that Fiorentina are holding out for 50 million euros, a fee they are hugely unlikely to receive for Cuadrado – they also add that it is a two-horse race for the signature of the Colombian.
Barcelona hope to lure the player with the promise of playing alongside Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar whilst they also have the advantage of Champions League football with Manchester United not taking part in European competition at all this coming season.
