Manchester United send scouts to watch Arsenal's top target

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager David Moyes sent scouts to watch Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado last weekend and is mulling over a summer swoop for the Colombian international , according to talkSPORT.

Cuadrado has enjoyed a strong season in Serie A that has led to consistent speculation over a move to the Premier League in recent months, although Arsenal rather than United are the Premier League side believed to be leading the race for his signature.

The 25-year-old possesses the kind of potency and pace in advanced areas that would definitely enhance Arsenal's attacking options, but they now have a rival for any deal thanks to a strong performance in front of United scouts during La Viola's clash with Udinese last weekend

Fiorentina won that match 2-1 and Cuadrado was instrumental in that success, scoring with a deflected drive from distance in a man-of-the-match display for Vincenzo Montella's side.

United scouts will no doubt have been impressed with the wing wizard, but plans to lodge an official offer may be scuppered by complications surrounding his long-term future.

Both sides who featured in that Fiorentina vs. Udinese match own 50% of the player's registration rights, which means any transfer offer has to be accepted by both clubs and split equally, making negotiations particularly tricky.
