Barca back away from Cuadrado

Juan Cuadrado’s rumoured move to Barcelona looks likely to be off after they paid €20m to get Jeremy Mathieu.

In their bid for a new defender the Blaugrana were forced to pay the Valencia centre back’s release clause of €20m.

As such, Mundo Deportivo claim that the Camp Nou outfit are unlikely to go in for the Fiorentina winger.

The Spanish side have been heavily linked with the Colombia international, but with big money spent on Mathieu, Ivan Rakitic and Luis Suarez, it is suggested that the Catalan side will now look to more affordable options.

The paper though, believes that Manchester United will have no such worries, and are still keen on getting Cuadrado.
