Juan Cuadrado annoyed with Fiorentina contract talks

Published Add your comment

Manchester United have been given a surprise boost in the race to sign Juan Cuadrado, as the player is believed to be annoyed with how long negotiations are taking regarding his new contract.

New deal in the works?

Earlier this week it was reported that the Colombia star was to be offered a new deal by Fiorentina to fend off the growing interest in his signature, but now it’s claimed that talks could be becoming a source of frustration. Sky Italia journalist Alfredo Pedulla has revealed that Cuadrado is irked by the way proceedings are progressing, as relayed by French newspaper Le 10 Sport.

It’s thought the stalling point revolves around the difference in opinion when it comes to the salary of his new deal, with Cuadrado holding out for €3.5million but Fiorentina reluctant to go above €2.5million. On top of that the two parties are at crossroads over the bonuses he would be getting, which means that an agreement is further away than was presumed.

United opportunity

This trouble could mean that there is a window of opportunity for Louis van Gaal to land Cuadrado, particularly seen as though his other major suitors, Barcelona, are banned from making transfers until 2016.

The Red Devils have plenty of money to spend in the January market and Van Gaal will be keen to once again bolster his forces as he aims to steer the club back to Champions League football. Over £150million has been spent since the Dutchman arrived at Old Trafford, and that figure is expected to rise once the transfer window re-opens.

United fans, would you like to see Cuadrado become the next big-money purchase?
