Man Utd bid £31m for Cuadrado?

Manchester United are reportedly preparing a €39m plus add-ons bid for Fiorentina and Colombia star Juan Guillermo Cuadrado.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, sources close to the Red Devils confirmed the plans are being drawn up on the orders of manager Louis Van Gaal.

The offer would be worth €39m plus performance-related bonuses – at least £31m.

It’s possible United have turned their focus to Cuadrado after finding it difficult to broker a deal with Juventus for Arturo Vidal.

Barcelona have not disguised their interest in the 26-year-old, who impressed both for Fiorentina and Colombia in recent months.
