Italian club Fiorentina suggest they are prepared to allow Juan Cuadrado to leave the club this summer.
The 26-year old Colombian winger is a target for both Manchester United and Barcelona and could quite possibly be on his way out the Fiorentina exit door if the Florence club receives an acceptable offer for him according to president Andrea Dalla Valle.
"Should it happen that an important offer arrives, we would have to allow Cuadrado to leave," he told local journalists.
"So with that I am not so optimistic about a positive final situation as I think an offer will arrive in the next few days, but he will only leave for certain amounts.
"But you need to understand if an important offer does arrive, it is like a loose train and I can't hang on.
"I told the player and underlined things that there is a serious project here and he could remain for one more season, in a winning side.
"He is honest and serious with us, and I told him if an offer should arrive we would free him.
"But the deadline is about a week to ten days away - around August 15 and if there is no adequate period in this period, he will remain."
