Have Man United Found Nani's Replacement Already?

Manchester United have a history of great wingers: Best, Giggs, Beckham, Ronaldo. It's fair to say that none of the current crop are getting anywhere near that level.

With that in mind, the Daily Mail reports that United scouts have been watching Fiorentina's Juan Cuadrado. The 25-year-old has spent more time at wing-back than the right-wing this year, but he still has six goals and three assists. That versatility, as well as his pace and skill, would also allow him to compete with Rafael for the right-back spot, finally putting an end to Chris Smalling's dire appearances there. David Moyes doesn't really strike us as a FIFA player, but he was unstoppable on FIFA 13 as well, in case you were wondering.

Fiorentina are believed to be ready to cash in on the Colombian, but the situation is complicated as he's co-owned by Udinese, who are also interested. It could all get a bit messy.

Should Moyes (try to) bring in Cuadrado this summer?
