Juan Cuadrado’s agent has revealed that “two top European clubs” made bids for the Fiorentina star this summer.
The Colombian winger was heavily linked with moves to Manchester United and Barcelona but nothing materialised due to Fiorentina’s asking price.
Speaking to TuttoMercatoWeb, Lucci confirmed Fiorentina were willing to sell but not unless their valuation was matched.
“Last summer I had offers from two top European clubs for Cuadrado, but they were not sufficient to deal with Fiorentina,” Lucci said.
“They didn’t want to sell Cuadrado less than an indecent offer.”
Now that the dust has settled on a turbulent summer of activity thanks to the World Cup, Lucci is confident a contract extension can be agreed between Cuadrado and Fiorentina.
He added: “I am convinced that we will find an agreement (for the contract’s extension) which satisfies all the parties, because this is the will of those involved,” Lucci added.
“Our considerations about the economic aspects are always the same from the first day.
“There are no problems between me and the player, there is complete harmony among us.”
Cuadrado was considered a perfect choice to become a wing-back under Louis van Gaal but United managed to do just fine without signing the Colombian as Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo offer plenty on the left flank.
Also, if Cuadrado was signed then a certain Angel di Maria would more than likely not arrived at Old Trafford, so United certainly got the better option in that respect.
