“It’s very difficult for Juan Cuadrado to turn down life-changing offers,” confessed Fiorentina director Vincenzo Guerini.
The Colombian international’s profile has sky-rocketed since the World Cup and he attracted interest from the likes of Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.
“I think he is very happy with us, but at the same time I put myself in his shoes,” club manager Guerini told Platinum Calcio.
“It’s very difficult for him to turn down life-changing offers. Clearly, if this famous proposal does not arrive, then he’d be very happy to remain with the Viola jersey.
“In any case, I can reassure the fans that if Cuadrado were to be sold, all the money would be reinvested in improving the squad, so there’d be no need to worry.”
Meanwhile, Giuseppe Rossi confirmed via Twitter that he will go back to wearing his favoured 22 jersey this season.
He had worn the 49 at Fiorentina because Adem Ljajic already had 22 when he arrived, but Pepito is returning to his old shirt.
Rossi chose 22 in honour of his father’s birthday and opted for 49 as it was the year of his Dad’s birth.
