The Colombian defender Juan Cuadrado has been one of the standout players of the World Cup and even before the worldwide competition had initiated, he already had attracted the attention of top clubs around the globe and now Fiorentina will have their work cut out trying to keep the Colombian star in the club.
“We will do everything possible to keep hold of Cuadrado, It is a difficult situation, but my first aim is to keep Cuadrado in Florence. There are no firm price-tags set, nor have I spoken to any clubs. I must admit, Cuadrado’s performances and visibility in the World Cup are not helping.” The co-owner of FIorentina, Andrea Della Valle stated.
Cuadrado has a contract with Fiorentina which runs up until 2017 but after a series of impressive performances by the 26 year old defender in the World Cup might tempt clubs on launching offers that could be just too hard to resist.
The defender of Fiorentina revealed to the public that he is only trying to focus on the World Cup and when it end, he will then discuss about whether or not to remain with the Italian club or join another club.
“I reiterate that my family and I are happy in Florence. I will only think about my future after the World Cup. Right now I’m living in a dream. This is just the beginning as we have not seen the real Cuadrado.” Cuadrado said.
Recently Barcelona and Bayern Munich are some of the football destinations that have been linked with the Colombian defender and both of those clubs are able to not only meet with the €40m buy-out clause that Fiorentina placed on Cuadrado but it will ultimately depend if the star of Colombia decides to leave the Italian club.
