FC Barcelona coach Luis Enrique still considers Juan Cuadrado as his top target and the club is ready to make final “take or leave it” offer for the Colombian international.
FC Barcelona has been linked with a move for Fiorentina’s Juan Cuadrado since past couple of months but both the clubs have failed to reach to an agreement over a transfer fee.
Reports coming from Spain suggest that FC Barcelona management has decided to take a last chance and they are ready to make final offer of 40 million euros. Marca reports that: “Barcelona are set to come back with one last bid for Juan Guillermo Cuadrado. Luis Enrique is adamant that the club needs to bring in someone to bomb up and down the right flank and the Colombian is his top target. Cuadrado’s future is expected to be resolved, one way or another, over the next few days or by early next week at the latest. That is what both the player and Fiorentina president Andrea Della Valle want.”
Premier League club Manchester United is also interested in Juan Cuadrado but the player has his heart set on a move to FC Barcelona. English media had suggested earlier this week that Manchester United are ready to outbid Barcelona for the signature of Cuadrado but any offer of 40 million from the Catalans will prove enough.
FC Barcelona coach Luis Enrique has asked the club management to sign a versatile player who can play as a winger and as a right back and considers Cuadrado as the perfect addition to his already talented squad.
Meanwhile, FC Barcelona are ready to sale right back Dani Alves in order to generate funds for the transfer of Juan Cuadrado.
I’m Glad That Suarez Has Left EPL: Chief Executive Scudamore
Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore has slammed Luis Suarez as an ‘accident waiting to happen’ and stressed that he was not sorry to see the back of the striker.
Luis Suarez completed his 80 million move from Liverpool to FC Barcelona last month having been banned by FIFA for all football related activity for four months.
“I think probably the time had come,” said Scudamore.
“He’s a great player and I’m not taking anything away from his talents: he was voted by both his own players and the media last year the player of the year and deservedly so.
“He’s great to have but an accident waiting to happen, and if you spend your time trying to promote what’s good about the Premier League, you’re always waiting for the next thing to come along.”
