Cuadrado left out of Fiorentina squad for Madrid match
15/08/2014 Upd. at 21:40 However, Cuadrado has not been called up for Fiorentina’s friendly against Real Madrid on Saturday evening in Poland, leading to more suggestions he could still leave the club during the current transfer window. CEST Sport EN Vincenzo Montella, Fiore’s manager, opted not to include him without offering an explanation why – he is not injured. It is for that reason that speculation has returned. The Colombian has been the talk of the summer, with both Manchester United and Barça hot on his heels, but as we head towards September he is still up for grabs. ‘Gazetta dello Sport’ report that Barça, even though they are still a long way from the player’s €50million asking price, have not renounced their interest in Cuadrado, despite the advanced negotiations for the Brazilian full-back Douglas. In Italy they don’t believe that Barcelona have given up on signing Fiorentina’s Juan Cuadrado. The Italian press say there is an agreement between Barcelona and the player’s agent and that pressure will continue to increase on Fiorentina to work on an economic solution.
