Only minutes after Juan Cuadrado had helped Colombia set-up a World Cup quarter-final clash with Brazil following a 2-0 win over Uruguay, he was pressed for more information on his future.
The Fiorentina star has been heavily linked with a move away from the club this season, with Barcelona, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool all said to have taken an interest in the winger.
A move to Anfield could certainly be plausible, given boss Brendan Rodgers’ football philosophy and the need to add more bodies ahead of next season.
Described as quick, excellent technically with frightening dribbling skills which have been used to great affect at the World Cup so far, The Reds would be wise to make Juan Cuadrado one of their main priorities this summer, especially if they miss out on Juventus-linked Alexis Sanchez.
The 26-year-old, however, has so far refused to divulge into his future whilst with the Colombian national team though he is confident he will make the right decision once his World Cup adventure is over.
“The future? “As I always said, I’m very calm now. I’m thinking about the national team and after the World Cup I will speak with my agent and we will make the right decision.” He said, quoted by Italian Sky Sports.
In 31 Serie A starts last season, Cuadrado managed to score 11 goals, add five assist and complete an astonishing 118 successful dribbles from a wide position, helping Fiorentina finish fourth.
Despite his team’s excellent campaign, La Viola missed out on Champions League football – a deciding factor which Liverpool on the other hand can offer and could use to persuade the Colombian to choose the Reds this summer.
