The Colombia international has been on the wishlist of some of the biggest clubs in Europe this summer.

At one point, Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Barcelona were all thought to be keen on signing the wide man.

But the Viola chief has insisted that the former Udinese talent will remain in Florence despite those rumours.

“I can say with certainty Cuadrado is staying,” he told reporters. “It's a big present for the city. I hope it's the strongest Viola of the Della Valle era.”
