Manchester United fans are looking aghast here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim they will not be landing Juan Cuadrado – and have no chance of doing so.
The publication has claimed that Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Montella has finally put to bed rumours of an exit for the winger who has been chased by Barcelona, Manchester United and Chelsea this summer – and we are not surprised the Serie A side are doing all in their power to keep him.
Montella came out fighting when asked about a potential move and noted: “I have never thought of losing Juan. He’s been here in the past, he is here now and he will be here in the future.”
“I don’t think about how his [Cuadrado’s] story might finish. A player like him can play in every position in midfield.”
This is of course a blow to Louis van Gaal but as one of our punters claims over a pint, we think the United boss has a couple of other targets lined up just in case and now is the time to chase after them!
