Report: Cuadrado or nothing for Barcelona

According to Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona have gone all out for Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado and won't accept failure.

Manchester United and Barcelona are reportedly fighting for the signature of Fiorentina star Juan Cuadrado, but the Spanish press believe the La Liga side are more focused on the Colombian.

Cuadrado's excellent 2013-14 campaign put him on the radars of many top European clubs and initially he was also linked with Paris Saint Germain, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Juventus.

But now the field seems to have shrunk to just Manchester United and Barcelona, who are waiting to hear whether the talented winger wants to leave Fiorentina.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo runs the headline: "Cuadrado or nothing" and suggests that Barcelona are only interested in Cuadrado and will set any other transfer targets aside.

Manchester United, on the other hand, are still being repeatedly linked with Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal, who may be taking up the majority of their energies.

Mundo Deportivo believes that Cuadrado understands what a massive opportunity a transfer to Barcelona could be and will be willing to sign for the Catalan giants.

Cuadrado met with Fiorentina's directors and owner yesterday and the Spanish paper claims he told them he wants to leave.

Barcelona may be in pole position to snap up Cuadrado, but it looks likely that they will have to find around £30 million to persuade his Italian owners to relinquish their grip on such a prized asset.
