Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado has dismissed reports that he is set to sign for Barcelona in January, as reported by Sky Sports.

The Colombian playmaker has been heavily linked with a move to the La Liga leaders and some have even reported that  a deal has been agreed.

Cuadrado has rubbished those reports however, which offers a lifeline to Arsenal and Manchester United who are both keen to bring the 25 year old to England.

The Colombian international knows that his place in the national team should be safe for the World Cup even if he stays at Fiorentina, but a move to major club would be a dream come true.

“Barcelona interest?” Cuadrado said.

“I have no contacts and the club has said nothing to me.

“Every player works to progress and play in big teams, but my mind says Fiorentina and I’m very happy here.

“Then we’ll see what happens in the future. I only think to work hard and improve; I still have room for improvement.”
