This could be one of the best summers in recent memory for our punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern and Manchester United fans could be the happiest of them all if Metro are to be believed.
The publication has claimed that the Red Devils are one step closer to finalising a move for Juan Cuadrado with the Columbine’s agent flying into Manchester to seal the deal.
According to Marca – so be careful United fans, because they are hardly known for their truth telling at times – the club will pay £36 million for the Fiorentina star.
With club president Andrea della Valle admitting that a ‘big offer’ would see the World Cup star leave Serie A and join Old Trafford, we are starting to think that even Fiorentina themselves are preparing to lose the winger.
For Louis van Gaal and United to land a player with such talent is certainly a massive coup this summer and one that shows they still have the money and the power to attract the top players in Europe.
Manchester United fans. Are you excited for the impending arrival of Cuadrado? Is this a massive step in the right direction again? Let us know your thoughts below.
