Manchester United Agree To Meet £36m Asking Price For Serie A Star

The Red Devils on the verge of landing Cuadrado.

Fiorentina midfielder Juan Cuadrado could be signing for Manchester United this summer as the 13-time Premier League champions agree to meet the Colombian’s £36m asking price, according to the Daily Express.

The Red Devils have been tracking the 26-year-old for some time and have already had a £32m bid for the South American rejected by the Serie A club.

New manager Louis van Gaal is keen to add more players to his squad before the transfer window shuts and with United having signed a world record £750m contract with Adidas this year, the funds to sign world-class stars is also there.

Cuadrado has been greatly impressing over the past 12 months and was one of the standout performers in the Italian top tier in 2013/14 and then was a key reason that Colombia reached the quarter-finals of the 2014 World Cup.

The midfield ace is also an extremely versatile player, with the ability to play on the wing, in the middle, or even as a full-back.

With van Gaal having implemented a new 3-5-2 formation that utilises wing-backs the Dutchman sees Cuadrado operating on one of the flanks.

So far this summer the club have spent £56m on two new first team players, with Ander Herrera signed from Athletic Bilbao for £29m and Luke Shaw arriving from Southampton for £27m.
