Manchester United are chasing Fiorentina sensation Juan Cuadrado. The Sunday Express says United are preparing to launch a £30m bid for Fiorentina's Cuadrado before the end of next week.

United have already made contact with La Viola to assure them that their interest in Cuadrado is genuine.

Louis Van Gaal has suggested that he may take up to four weeks to assess his squad but he is believed to be behind United's interest in the Colombian.
