Juan Cuadrado to Manchester United edging closer as agent flies in for talks

Juan Cuadrado was one of the stars of this years World Cup, and the Columbian international finished the competition with the joint-most assists after setting up four goals. The right-winger signed for Fiorentina back in 2012, and could be on the move after just two seasons due to some fantastic performances.

Cuadrado, 26, is known for his electric pace and crossing abilities, and the right-winger would certainly fit into Louis van Gaal’s system with consummate ease. Cuadrado started his career as a right-back, but was converted into a right-winger due to his attacking threat. Louis van Gaal’s wingback role would be a great combination of the two, and with his bundle of energy and bags of pace, he’d be a constant thorn in the oppositions side.

According to Marca, Cuadrado’s agent is flying into Manchester to continue discussions with Manchester United – who are now in pole position after Dani Alves’ Barcelona future is up in the air.

The deal is thought to cost United in excess of £30million, as Cuadrado has recently signed a new contract at Fiorentina which immediately bumped up his price.
