Once again Manchester United and Barcelona are reportedly battling over a player, but unlike with Thomas Vermaelen who is heading for the Nou Camp, the Colombian is said to be Old Trafford-bound.

And now Della Valle admits that Cuadrado could leave if a deal is agreed before August 15, a deadline imposed by the Italian club and he believes that an offer will come in.

Reports in Italy claim United are closing on a deal worth over £30million for the right-sided star - who impressed hugely at the World Cup finals.

"Should it happen that an important offer arrives, we would have to allow Cuadrado to leave," he told local journalists.

"So with that I am not so optimistic about a positive final situation as I think an offer will arrive in the next few days, but he will only leave for certain amounts.

"But you need to understand if an important offer does arrive, it is like a loose train and I can't hang on.

"I told the player and underlined things that there is a serious project here and he could remain for one more season, in a winning side.

"He is honest and serious with us, and I told him if an offer should arrive we would free him.

"But the deadline is about a week to ten days away - around August 15 and if there is no adequate period in this period, he will remain."

"So with that I am not so optimistic about a positive final situation as I think an offer will arrive in the next few days" Management speak at its finest! Rodgers and Humpy would e proud of it.
