Udinese don’t expect to decide the future of Fiorentina’s co-owned Juan Cuadrado until the end of the season.
The Colombian international belongs to both parties, but the Viola are keen to take control of his full rights.
“I don’t think that we will resolve the situation during the January transfer window,” Udinese sporting director Cristiano Giaretta told Radio Sportiva.
“However, we’ll certainly do all we can to facilitate Fiorentina with regards to keeping him.”
The winger, in his second campaign at the Artemio Franchi, is one of the most exciting attacking wide players in Serie A.
“How much is he worth right now? At the moment I will say €30m or €40m,” added the Stadio Friuli official.
Cuadrado, 25, has been linked with the likes of Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Juventus in recent times.
