Fiorentina confident Juan Cuadrado will stay

Vincenzo Montella is hopeful that Juan Cuadrado will stay with Fiorentina, despite reports having linked him with Manchester United and Barcelona.

Fiorentina head coach Vincenzo Montella has expressed his confidence that the Italian club will be able to retain Juan Cuadrado's services beyond the end of the summer transfer window.

Following his performances at the World Cup with Colombia, the winger has been linked with moves to both Manchester United and Barcelona.

However, speaking to La Nazione, Montella has insisted that he has not considered life without the 26-year-old in his squad.

"I have never thought of losing Juan. He's been here in the past, he is here now and he will be here in the future. I don't think about how his story might finish. A player like him can play in every position in midfield."

Cuadrado scored 15 goals in all competitions for La Viola last season.
