Three wingers Man Utd could sign if Pedro joins Man City

Yulea Roopai examines three wingers Manchester United could potentially target if they fail to sign Pedro Rodriguez

By Yulea Roopai

Juan Cuadrado

Chelsea midfielder Juan Cuadrado has struggled to light up Stamford Bridge despite arriving in west London with a big reputation. The 26-year-old, who can play either as a right winger, striker, or a wing back with his dazzling dribbling ability and raw speed would bring Manchester United a different creative talent other than their perpetual sideways passing. Cuadrado would also be a different creative outlet in the attack and his ability to shoot with venom is an added bonus. It remains to be seen whether Chelsea would be winning to give up on the player just six months into his Blues career.

Lucas Moura

Lucas Moura is a winger who plays in the right flank and possess dazzling dynamism on the ball and is more than capable of getting past defenders on his trail. The player, who was omitted from Luiz Felipe Scholari’s side for the Selecao squad for the World Cup, would desperately seek more time on the pitch as he has just featured in 23 starts under Paris Saint-Germain manager Laurent Blanc, scoring five goals and grabbing 12 assists.

Yacine Brahimi

Yacine Brahimi also impressed at the World Cup with Algeria, and has continued that form in Portugal. An exciting wideman who runs at defenders, the 25-year-old Porto forward scored five goals and grabbed three assists in nine Champions League games last season to show he can deliver on the highest stage. Brahimi’s enticing trickery and direct mentality would give the Red Devils a different edge to their offensive forays.
