Manchester United have tabled a €40m bid for Fiorentina’s Juan Cuadrado, the Gazzetta dello Sport believe.
The Italian sports daily has claimed that Louis van Gaal’s side are set to rival Barcelona in an attempt to sign the Colombia international.
The Viola wide man has been constantly linked with a move away from Tuscany this summer, with Barca and Bayern Munich thought to be interested in his services.
But the pink paper has insisted that the Premier League outfit have come forward with a formal offer of €40m for Cuadrado.
Fiorentina signed the attacker outright from Udinese just last month after a season-long loan.
But despite the club’s insistence that they will keep their star asset, it seems likely that they won’t be able to turn down United’s offer.
