Man United to miss out on Cuadrado

Columbian World Cup star Juan Cuadrado has expressed his preference for a move to Barcelona rather than Manchester United, according to The Daily Star.

There had been reports that a deal to take Cuadrado to Old Trafford from Fiorentina was almost complete, with some sources even suggesting United had agreed personal terms with the 26-year-old wide man.

However, the move appears to be in jeopardy after reports emerged in Spain that Cuadrado has asked the Fiorentina hierarchy to consider Barcelona’s offer, and claimed that he has told friends that the chance to represent the Blaugrana would represent the opportunity of a lifetime.

Cuadrado began his professional career with Columbian top flight outfit Deportivo Independiente Medellín, with who he played just one season before Udinese brought him to Italy in July 2009.

His impressive performances in a season-long loan spell with Lecce prompted Fiorentina to pay €5 million (£4 million) for his services in 2012. Since joining he has scored 20 goals in 83 appearances in all competitions for La Viola.

Cuadrado has also accumulated 33 caps for the Columbia national team, and his starring role in their recent exciting World Cup campaign have seen some rate him at around £36 million.

While nothing is confirmed regarding his transfer, his reported desire to join Barcelona will be a blow to Louis van Gaal who was said to have identified Cuadrado as his preferred choice in the wing-back role for United.
