Manchester United have made a £32 million bid for winger Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina, report the Express, but the Colombian international has his heart set on a move to join La Liga giants Barcelona.

United manager Louis van Gaal has identified Cuadrado as the ideal solution to his lack of a clear candidates for the right-sided position in his new 3-5-2 system, with the Colombian having played both at right back and on the wing during his time in Serie A.

Cuadrado, however, wants to become the latest big name player to join new Barcelona manager Luis Enrique at the Nou Camp this summer – but the Catalan side are not prepared to match United’s offer for the player.

The report suggests that the Colombian has asked the Florence based side to lower their demands to try and force through a move to La Liga, but with United having put such a huge fee on the table, they could still seal a move for Cuadrado if Barcelona are not willing to up their bid for the former Udinese man.

Currently, van Gaal has the likes of Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young and Rafael to choose from on the right flank, although it has been suggested that the former Netherlands manager will be allowing a number of players to leave Old Trafford before the end of the transfer window.
