Reports in Italy have suggested that Manchester United have only five more days in which to wrap up a move for World Cup star Juan Cuadrado, as reported by the Daily Star.
Cuadrado’s club Fiorentina have told the clubs that have declared their interest in the transfer of the wing wizard that they have only until the 20th of August to make a move. Should a deal not be completed in that time, Cuadrado would be kept in Serie A until the end of the coming season.
Man Utd were handed a boost recently when the club’s president Andrea Della Valle informed the press that he did not believe he would be able to keep a hold of the Colombian World Cup star. Cuadrado also reportedly asked to leave.
Fiorentina reportedly want £40 million for his transfer, with Man Utd only offering £36 million. Even if they can agree a fee for the player, Barcelona are sniffing around and Cuadrado is said to prefer a move to the Catalan giants.
They have not, however, expressed as much interest as Man Utd, and he could be forced to move to Manchester as a result, should a deal be agreed in time.
