Manchester United have just been given another reason to step up their pursuit of Fiorentinia winger Juan Cuadrado after he scored a stunning goal in his team's 3-0 win over Inter Milan on Sunday.
The Colombian was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford over the summer, with reports suggesting that a transfer in the region of £32 million could be on the cards. Barcelona were also linked with him, but it seemed as though the Red Devils were in the driving seat.
Cudrado shone for his country at the World Cup in Brazil over the summer which prompted Manchester United's interest - and if anyone from Old Trafford sees this goal then it's likely to spark a bidding frenzy.
With Fiorentina already 1-0 up against Inter Milan, Cuadrado stepped up to double his side's lead in impeccable fashion.
With just 19 minutes on the clock the 26-year-old cut in from the left hand side and spanked a shot from around 25 yards which flew past Samir Handanovic in the Inter goal.
That was his first league goal of the season, and he'll be hoping for plenty more which could lead to a big money move over the summer. Manchester United may well end up getting their man if reports are to be believed as talks over a new deal for Colombian in Florence have stalled.
Reports claim that he is holding out for a deal worth £70,000-per-week and Fiorentina will only give him £50,000-per-week, which could open the door for Manchester United to pounce. They could easily afford wages in that region for a player of his quality - and could solve a problem for manager Louis van Gaal on the right wing.
Manchester United spent big over the summer and will likely do the same when the winter window rolls around. They've been linked with moves for Kevin Strootman and Mats Hummels once more, while a swoop for Arturo Vidal could be on the cards.
Away from the transfer market and the Red Devils appear to be finding their stride under Van Gaal. They pulled off a 2-1 win against Everton on Sunday to make it two league wins on the bounce, which moved them up to 4th place.News Now - Sport News
