Barca favourites to sign in-demand winger.
Read more Manchester United transfer news.
Barcelona are the current favourites to sign Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado after they missed out to Manchester United for Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria, according to the Daily Express.
The Catalan giants have been linked with the talented Colombian international for much of this transfer window as new manager Luis Enrique looks to bring in a player capable of playing as a right-sided wing-back.
A £32m deal should be enough for Barca to bring Cuadrado in, with Di Maria now looking set to make a long-awaited move to Old Trafford after months of speculation surrounding his future at the Bernabeu.
The 26-year-old wide-man was one of the stand-out performers in Serie A last season and also impressed for his country at this summer’s World Cup, and will become the latest big-name addition at the Nou Camp this summer after the likes of Luis Suarez and Ivan Rakitic were also snapped up by the club.
Barcelona also made an audatious attempt to sign Di Maria from their arch-rivals Real, though the Champions League winners were quick to reject an offer as they had no plans on allowing the Argentine to line up for their La Liga competitors.
