Colombian ace Juan Cuadrado insists that he's not thinking of his future while the World Cup is ongoing.

The winger has been one of the stars of the tournament in Brazil so far, helping his country to qualify for the knock-out stages with a game to spare. 

Rumours have been circulating about his future before the tournament began, but Fiorentina's move to purchase the remainder of his rights from Udinese last week has prompted suggestions that they could be preparing to sell up.


Both Liverpool and Manchester United have been linked with the 26-year-old in recent months, and it is no surprise that the rumours have gathered pace after his performances at the World Cup.

However, far from thinking about a switch to either Manchester United or Liverpool, he insists he's focused solely on helping Colombia make progress in Brazil.

"I am very happy that Fiorentina bought me, they are a great club and Florence is a beautiful city," Cuadrado is quoted as saying in the Daily Express.

"Now I don't think about my club future, I hope to finish the World Cup very well with Colombia, I only think about that."

Transfer window

While Liverpool have already added to their squad this summer, Manchester United have had no such luck. With new boss Louis van Gaal away at the World Cup and not due to take over at Old Trafford until next month, the task of recruiting new players has fallen to Executive Vice Chairman Ed Woodward.

Liverpool meanwhile have signed Rickie Lambert and Emre Can, and are also in the market for a new left-back and midfielder.
