Man U

Manchester United hope to complete €31m deal today – report


Perfect deal

Louis Van Gaal apparently handed Ed Woodward a list of targets this summer, to include a Plan A, B and C. If Manchester United do get this deal done that it would have to be considered the plan A.

Because there are few better players in the world for the newly created right wingback position at Manchester United than Colombia international Juan Cuadrado.

With Barcelona seemingly also in the mix for his signature this deal would represent a major coup for Manchester United. An A-list signing that the fans crave. The Daily Mail suggests that the transfer could be completed as soon as this weekend.

United are hoping to seal the £25million (31m Euro) signing of Columbian Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina by the end of the weekend.

Earlier in the week a breakthrough seemed more likely for the player when Fiorentina president Andrea della Valle said of Cuadrado:

‘But I want to say to Fiorentina fans that if a big offer arrives, the player will leave our club, and I think this offer will arrive.

We think that this would be a super addition to the side. While Valencia and Rafael are more than capable of doing a job on the right side, Cuadrado adds an extra attacking dimension. He’s a speed demon with great feet, wonderful distribution and the ability to carve goals out of nothing.


We are still concerned that Barcelona will come in for the player having completed their business for Thomas Vermaelen but the next week should prove conclusive, one mayor the other, for Manchester United.

Let’s see the lad in a action.

    Aug 10, 2014 at 11:07 am

    For me LVG has nt signed a player of his own coz Hererra and Shaw were targeted by former managers and we don’t want a Fellain like situation so buy now we are tired of reading man u closer to signing…. We want real action!

  17. Kiros

    Aug 10, 2014 at 11:32 am

    I dont think Ed woodward and LVG have a common agreement on who should be bought. And now am feeling the terror that happened on Snieder, Thiago, Silva and others who join another clubs after a lengthy and strong rumouR

    Aug 10, 2014 at 1:45 pm

    more bull shit stories, united wil not buy anyone else this summer . mainly due to united can’t attract the best players anymore , ed woodward is out of his depth and should be sacked . I be surprised if we are in top 4 next season . even van gaal has got his work cut out . I reckon the money that was mean’t for players from the addidas deal will go in the glaizers pockets . united will rely on youth as well as senior players . I just hope im proved wrong … if not I will be gutted .

  21. lamin jawla

    Aug 10, 2014 at 2:36 pm

    I about to understand that van gasp and ed wood are planning worst disasterous season for man u and its fans.they are just pretenders. shame on them.

    Aug 10, 2014 at 3:04 pm

    All the teams that were far stronger than us have strengthened but we are five 5 players weaker. Mr Lvg you had better listen.Moyes didnt and the rest is history.At times it is good not to be stoic

  23. osego

    Aug 10, 2014 at 3:05 pm

    the only say to end this long endless saga man utd fire ed woodward, he is useless lets hire someone who can do his job and help us buy new world class players.

  29. Marcell

    Aug 10, 2014 at 3:46 pm

    United better not let Cuadrado end up at ANY other premiere league side. We absolutely need a top-class, rock-steady centre back, right wing-back (Valencia & Cuadrado can both fill in there if 1st choice RB is unavailable) and I say forget Vidal & get Daley Blind to sure-up midfield as we also have a rejuvenated Fletcher after illness in peak form already (my choice for captain). Vidal could unsettle the team since there has been so much damn hype about him this transfer window. LVG will need 100% effort & commitment from all, no glory-boys who think that the weeks 100-200k is earned without effort! At least Louis has shown he can get what is required from a reasonably tattered squad. MAN-U 4 EVA – CHAMPS ALWAYS !!!!!!!!

    Man Utd nid 2 wake up nd sign quality players nt waiting 4 d last hour of transfer mkt b4 signing player, I dont think Edwood has d quality to make all this deal happen, irrespective if man Utd is not playing in d champions league or Europa, our good Will can still attract good players…Edwood and LVG need to wake up and bring players into man utd

  31. Bingi Ssendagire

    Aug 10, 2014 at 4:18 pm

    United is fake. No more signing:

  32. kiloforson

    Aug 10, 2014 at 4:23 pm

    what is happening United will seal deal soon later to be reported it did not happened, why?
    pls tell Van Gaal, we love him but with dis we don’t have option to throw it to him.

  33. mark

    Aug 10, 2014 at 4:33 pm

    It’s now evident nothing has changed in manchester except the new coach.We’ve carried our disastrious baggage from last season in the name of ed woodward.This guy is full of empty promises or creating a fuss all he keeps saying is that we have money.What for if we can’t use it ed.

    Everyday I want to read the news, hoping for a good news that United has bought an outstanding player but all I ever got to read are just mere words that yield no result. Is money our problem? hell no I don’t think so. Woodward is full of shitty words and talks can’t even do Business rightly.

  37. Saidu Sesay

    Aug 10, 2014 at 6:28 pm

    Man utd board of directors,what are u up to,or why have we not got added signings. Pls try to sign more useful players,before is too late.

  38. ebiwanno Ademola

    Aug 10, 2014 at 6:30 pm

    it look embarrassing up to this very moment no substantive signing it look absurd to hear this . for the fact dat we finished 7th last session, we should be d one to have the best transfer this session but reverse is d case imaging!!!

  39. Gabara

    Aug 10, 2014 at 6:40 pm

    The problem is with the Glazers and their board. Why can’t they know the kind of improvement that is needed by the club. Even the blind ones will tell you that the club need a winger, a box-to-box holding midfielder, two or three defenders, etc. Woodward has said there is no monetary crisis. He is good at speeches motivating other clubs to demand exorbitant fees. I think he is foolish and deserves an axe immediately. The question is if Man United is having enough funds, why can’t they buy players that can improve the club. To Louis van Gaal I say Ibelieve but I think you are wrong to take such long time buying players that you think will improve the club.

  40. Ismaeel Saban

    Aug 10, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    Lvg I like ur ideas I like the players u plan to buy. Rather pay big and get the right players in than pay for players like fellaini. So scratch deep in ur pocket and buy the lads. Pay 50m for vidal, 65m for do maria, 40m for deus, Hummel’s and cuadrado. Plzzzzzzzz buy these guys I’ll go on my knees if I have to. PS: u a great manager

    I dont think Van Gaal is decieving the fans, if you dont want to buy players, you dont need to lie, and Ed Woodward also always lie to fans, we are tired of ur lies, if Man United never be at Top 4 this season, that time you will see how fans will turn back, why lie? are we fools?

    United will not be signing any new players soon. All the so-called rumour singings are just plain rubbish. Another manager who is stringed along on the Glazer’s tag? MANU – We will win nothing again this season if no big cash is spent on good players. Mr Woodward?

  72. mohamed sahid kamara

    One thing I dn’t like about MAN UTD is dis, they are too slow in themes of signing players. Wll need qualities players and let them talk with money, they dn’t talk with money. All they know is will are almost done with it. Will are one of the richest club in the word but know good players. Please fr the sack of.”FANS” wll need CUADRADO, VIDAL before the week runs out.

    If you want to sign a player go and sign him one time like mouriho always do by not waisting time. See the likes of Barca snatching away Vermehlen that’s too bad and no chelsea and barca are in race for Cuardrado if you like waist time again and loos him.

  77. Luk Just

    Aug 11, 2014 at 9:09 am

    Man u fans, u r now back to my early comment about the arrows and missiles. LVG is the right man for Ed Woodward. Ed Woodward u claim man u has the funds to break the transfer records. Where is the money Man u? R u telling us LVG has not yet seen the reason n players to buy? are Vidal, Di maria, Juan Cuadrado, Blind and Mat not good enough to cure our one yrd wound. LVG be the right Medicine for us. Speak your mind to man u mgt. For real we r tired waiting while others are busy buying. R we again to get used to losing? Please man u at least buy for us Vidal, Di maria and Blind. We are tired n tired waiting.

    With Ed Woodward in charge in negotiations United will not be signing any A list players. Poor Van Gaal doesn’t realise what an amateur he has in charge of transfers. Woodward has spent most of his time this summer raising money for the Glasier empire, spending it is not really high on his list of concerns.
