Manchester United are upping their bid to land Fiorentina sensation wing-back Juan Cuadrado. The Daily Express says United re hopeful they can complete the signing of Fiorentina star Cuadrado before the start of the season after it emerged that his club will let the wing-back leave for £36million.

A number of stars including Shinji Kagawa and Javier Hernandez look set to depart Old Trafford shortly, and the Dutchman is determined to bolster his ranks by beating Barcelona to Cuadrado's signature.

United have already submitted an offer of £32million for the 26-year-old's services, but Serie A outfit Fiorentina are adamant he won't be sold for anything less than £36million.
