€30m bidding war for Cuadrado

Fiorentina talent Juan Guillermo Cuadrado is wanted by Bayern Munich, Arsenal, Juventus and more, but costs at least €30m.

According to Sky Sport Italia transfer pundit Gianluca Di Marzio, the bidding war is set to explode this summer.

Colombian international Cuadrado hit the headlines last night with this stunning strike in Fiorentina’s 2-0 Coppa Italia victory over Udinese.

The Viola do not own the winger outright, as 50 per cent of his contract still belongs to Udinese.

He is valued at a minimum of €30m, so one of the two clubs must pay €15m to buy the player outright in June.

There is already a queue of clubs all over Europe wanting information on his future, including Arsenal, Juventus and Bayern Munich.

Fiorentina are eager to keep hold of Cuadrado and already increased his wages to €1.5m per season, but it’s still far less than what he could earn elsewhere.
