Not Di Maria: Manchester United now odds on favourites to sign frightening winger


Essential signing

The trail seems to have gone a little bit quiet on this one over the last week or so. But Manchester United desperately need to add some pace to their side and they needn’t look much further for that than the brilliant Colombian ace Juan Cuadrado.

The president of his club Fiorentina last week intimated that the player would probably leave before the end of this transfer window.

Barcelona are in danger of spoiling Manchester United’s party on this one, particularly as their ban has been upheld this week, so that they won’t be able to sign players for the next two windows.

This means that they might well spend more now. But Manchester United have the cash and need this player badly.

Reports this week have suggested that Manchester United will make another bid for the player and, possibly in light of that news, bookmakers Skybet have cut the odds on a move for Cuadrado.

Manchester United are now clear favourites at 1/2 to sign the player if he does move on this summer. Barcelona are second in the betting at 13/8 as things stand.

The right flank is probably not the weakest area of Manchester United’s squad. But they certainly don’t have a really world-class operator and Cuadrado would be a wonderful solution to add dynamism, pace and cutting-edge to United’s recently pedestrian attacks.

Still only 26 years of age he has played 31 times for Columbia and become an integral part of the national set up. He’s got wonderful distribution, an unbelievable engine and the ability to go past his man in one-on-one situations. There is very little not to like about the lad.

Let’s see some more of him in action and hope for good news on this one in the next few days. Manchester United fans: an essential buy?

    LVG should act fast to snatch this Di Maria addition. Am not convinced about Mr. LVG. transfer credentials if he can leave good players like MEMPHIS DEPAY, HECTOR HERRERA, D. BLIND, STEFAN DE RIJ. I remember Rio Ferdinand begging Mr. LVG to buy Hector Herrera. stop bickering for targets time mite not meet them like Vidal saga. AS a manu fan, I urge time to bring to an end this mess we are in n shop stop doubting every potential addition by saying mite not suite ur style of play. BOSS OF FADE UP WITH TIME. WE NEED ACTIONS & RESULTS NOT BICKERING. UNLESS TIME HAVE NOT MADE UP YOUR MIND OTHERWISE TIME CAN’T MISS OUT ON THESE PLAYERS WE CAN ADD DYNAMICS TO OUR SQUAD. AND FOR FOR MARIA, THIS SHOULD BE ALREADY IN OLD TRAFORD TRAINING. BOSS YU ARE THE RITE MAN BT. AGAIN, YU MUST BE AGGRESSIVE IN TRANSFERS LIKE MOU.

    Di Maria ni winga mzuri sana hivyo kocha wetu Luis Van de Gaal inabidi afanye linalo wezekana kumsajili Di Maria iliturudi katika hali yetu yazamani bila kusahau atufanyie usajili wa mabeki kwani ndochanzo kikubwa sana cha kupoteza mechi nazani mechi yakwanza imeleta mtazamo mzuri kama itakuwa ivo united itasimama imara kama zamani kipindi cha akina Rio na Vidic.
