Fiorentina set £40m price tag for Cuadrado

The Colombia international has been heavily linked with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester United, but the Viola will only sell their star man for the right price
Fiorentina sporting director Daniele Prade admits the club would reluctantly consider selling Juan Cuadrado should they receive a bid of €50 million (£40m).

The Colombia international has been linked with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester United after an impressive 2013-14 campaign, but his current employers are adamant that the winger will not come cheap.

"If an offer of €50 million were to come in, we would be willing to open talks. But there's no such offer as of yet," Prade told Sky Sports 24.

"We hope that Cuadrado will continue to play for Fiorentina. There has not been an official offer for him.

"We are in constant contact with the player and his agent. He will return to the club on August 4 or 5. We will then talk with him."

The versatile 26-year-old attacker has a contract with Fiorentina until the summer of 2017 and scored 11 goals in a stellar Serie A season, before impressing further at the World Cup.

He started his professional career with Independiente Medellin and also wore the jerseys of Udinese and Lecce before joining the Artemio Franchi side in 2012.
