The Red Devils were linked with the pacey Colombian winger for much of the summer, but were unable to lure him away from Italy as La Viola held firm.
Cuadrado himself was rumoured to have been open to a switch away from Florence, with United a tempting option for him.
And now Louis van Gaal is already plotting a fresh move for the 26-year-old.
Barcelona were also interested in the South American during the last window, but their subsequent transfer activity looks to have put the blockers on any move for the tricky star.
LVG is attracted to Cudarado’s versatility, with the speedster able to play at right-back, right wing-back or on either flank in an attacking role.
The Dutchman has ditched his 3-5-2 formation already this term, but he may re-visit the system when and if he has players suitable for the roles required.
