The Old Trafford outfit will look to see off Blues interest in the Colombian by offering his Fiorentina employers Adnan Januzaj on a loan deal as part of a package to sign the South American.
Belgian wonderkid Januzaj has struggled to retain a foothold in Louis van Gaal’s first team set-up and may well jump at the chance of a temporary move to Serie A.
26 year old Cuadrado had an impressive campaign last term, bagging 15 goals in all competitions, before drawing more attention to his abilities at the 2014 World Cup finals.
Van Gaal had attempted to sign the Fiorentina star over the summer and will hope that a renewed effort will succeed this week.
