The Red Devils want Cuadrado.
Fiorentina midfielder Juan Cuadrado remains a transfer target for Manchester United, who are prepared to pay £29m for the Colombian, according to the Daily Star.
Having enjoyed an impressive previous 12 months in Serie A and then at the 2014 World Cup the interest in the 26-year-old has risen greatly in recent times.
Both United and Barcelona have been particularly keen on landing Cuadrado and La Viola finally appear to be prepared to negotiate a price as they are now resigned to losing the South American.
New Red Devils manager Louis van Gaal is a keen admirer of the Colombia international, but is avoiding taking about him to the press in case it hikes his price up.
Cuadrado is an appealing prospect due to his versatility and ability to play in a variety of positions.
Although generally used as a right winger by his country, he can also play as a right-back or anywhere in midfield.
With van Gaal having adopted a 3-4-1-2 formation at Old Trafford which utilises wing-backs, the 62-year-old perhaps sees Cuadrado filling the wide right position.
Last season he made 43 appearances for Fiorentina in all competitions, scoring 15 goals and providing 10 assists.
