Manchester United transfer news: Louis van Gaal readies '£30m bid' for Colombia winger Juan Cuadrado, according to reports in Spain
The Colombian winger has admitted that he does not know if his future lies at Fiorentina or elsewhere
Fiorentina’s in-demand winger Juan Cuadrado is believed to be on Louis van Gaal’s radar as he continues his revamp of the Manchester United squad, according to reports.
Cuadrado impressed at the World Cup as he starred alongside James Rodriguez in the Colombia side that reached the quarter-finals, and it is believed that his ability to perform on the biggest stage of them all has gained interest from the new United manager.
Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo has claimed that United will increase their interest into a formal bid of £30m for the 27-year-old, with quotes attributed to Cuadrado admitting that he does not yet know where his future lies.
Speaking after the World Cup, Cuadrado said: “I don’t know yet what will happen. At this moment I haven’t received any concrete offers from any club.”
The belief is that United will face competition from Spanish club Barcelona, who are also going through a squad rebuilding phase along with the appointment of a new manager in Luis Enrique.

The Spaniard has already overseen the additions of Luis Suarez, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Claudio Bravo, Ivan Rakitic and Jeremy Mathieu, but it is not yet known whether the Catalan club will enter the race for Cuadrado with the likes of Neymar, Messi and Suarez set to link up in what will be a world class attack.
