Manchester United fans are disappointed as they walk into the Football Transfer Tavern hearing the news they are set to miss out on another target – this time from Serie A.
According to talkSPORT, Manchester United’s long-term target Juan Cuadrado is set to sign a new contract at current club Fiorentina.
Punters in the tavern were left with dropped jaws after his superb displays during the World Cup in Brazil, leaving Manchester United fans drooling over the prospect of him playing at the Theatre of Dreams.
But after failing to reach an agreement over the 26-year-old’s £32 million asking price tag in the summer, it was expected that the Red Devils would be after him in January but to van Gaal’s despair, Fiorentina have managed to tie him down before the January window opens.
The lucrative deal in place to extend the Colombian’s stay in Florence is supposedly worth double the wages he currently earns.
The Viola will hope this is enough to not only ward off interest from Manchester United but also Barcelona with the Spanish giants are also keen on the winger.
