Real Madrid to move for Fiorentina speedster?

Recent reports in the peninsula suggest that Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho is keen on Fiorentina midfielder Juan Cuadrado.

Italian transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio has maintained that the Portuguese tactician is a great admirer of the Colombian, and has been scouting the player over the past few months.

Yet Mourinho’s future with the Spanish giants is in doubt, with much speculation claiming that the famed coach will not remain at the helm past the end of the current campaign.

However, Di Marzio believes that the 50 year-old will attempt to bring in the Viola speedster wherever he may be next season.

Cuadrado is owned by Udinese and presently on loan at Fiorentina. He has made 24 Serie A appearances for the Artemio Franchi outfit this term, tallying one goal and four assists.
