Mundo Deportivo claim Fiorentina’s Juan Cuadrado has agreed personal terms with Barcelona.
The Colombian is actually co-owned between the Viola and Udinese, so any transfer would require both clubs to be in agreement.
According to the Spanish newspaper, Cuadrado’s agents have given their word that Barça will be first choice and already agreed personal terms.
He has been linked with Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund.
Cuadrado’s price tag could soar after the World Cup in Brazil, so Barcelona are eager to get his all-clear early.
He won’t be able to play tonight’s Coppa Italia Final against Napoli, as he is suspended.
