Manchester United and Juan Cuadrado have reportedly agreed personal terms, according to Catalan newspaper Sport. The Columbian winger was one of the stars of the World Cup, and has attracted interest and potential bids from the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United.
At the end of last week, it was believed that Juan Cuadrado’s agent had flew into Manchester to discuss talks about the potential transfer of his client, and coupling that with today’s news it does all seem to fit in place.
Louis van Gaal has often talked about the right-wingback spot being a ‘specialist’ position, and one that Cuadrado would excel in. The 26-year old started his carer as a right-back, but was then converted into a right-winger due to his electrifying pace. He has the skills to play at both the aforementioned positions, hence why I think the wingback role is tailor-made for him.
The fee to prise him away from Fiorentina is apparently around the £30-40million mark, which is the norm for a player of his calibre approaching the peak of his powers. He still has a few years left on his contract too, meaning the Italian side can command such a fee for Cuadrado.
