Fiorentina star Juan Cuadrado has refused to commit his future to the Italian side amid Manchester United and Barcelona's interest in securing his services.

The Colombian winger's future at the Serie A side has been under scrutiny following his impressive World Cup.

Barcelona have reportedly earmarked him as a possible replacement for Brazilian star Dani Alves as he can play both as a winger and at right-back.

Although some reports claim the Spanish giants had given up on his transfer due to Fiorentina's £32m valuation, the Catalans are said to be back in contention for the Colombian after Fifa banned them from transfers for a year from January 2015.

As a result, Luis Enrique's side now have to bolster the squad not just for this season but for the next and with Alves' contract set to expire next summer they're need for a right back has grown.

Meanwhile, Louis van Gaal is also said to be keen on bringing Cuadrado to Old Trafford.

Although the Premier League giants are on the verge of completing the signing of Angel Di Maria for around £64m, the Dutch boss still expects further additions following a disappointing start to the campaign.

And Cuadrado would fit seamlessly into his 3-4-1-2 formation covering the right flank, currently filled by Antonio Valencia with Rafael da Silva unavaliable.

The Fiorentina star has also further fuelled rumours of his summer exit when asked whether he wants to move away.

"My future does not depend on me, there is still time until the market closes, isn´t it? I don't know..." he was quoted as saying by Mundo Deportivo.

Even though Fiorentina manager Vincenzo Montella recently claimed he hopes to keep Cuadrado, club owner Andrea Della Valle had previously admitted the club are open to negotiating a deal should any club meet their demands.

"If an important offer were to come in we would have to let him go. The boy is honest and serious and if the offer comes in we'll let him go. However, I have reiterated that he could stay another year. The chances of him staying? I do not know the percentages but it will be difficult to keep him," he said.
