Man United join Arsenal in hunt for Serie A star

Manchester United are set to take on Arsenal this summer in the battle for Fiorentina’s Juan Cuadrado, according to reports from talkSPORT.

The Gunners have been linked with the pacey Colombian for some time, with Arsene Wenger thought to see him as an ideal addition to his squad this off-season.

But now David Moyes is also keen, with the United chief having had the versatile wide-man scouted recently.

Cuadrado has emerged as one of Serie A’s hottest talents this term, with his bombarding performances and six league goals having helped La Viola into contention for European qualification.

The South American’s pure speed has been the major source of praise of late, with the right-sided ace possessing electrifying pace.

Moyes is said to see him as a good addition, with the 25-year-old able to play at either full-back or in a more advanced wing position.

His ownership situation may be tricky for United to negotiate, with both Fiorentina and Udinese possessing 50% of his rights.

However the two clubs are yet to agree a fee to take the other half, which could allow the Premier League champions to sneak in with a summer bid.
