Manchester United should look to Colombia star

Uruguay played against Colombia last night in a World Cup qualifier, and both teams were well stocked with talented players that might interest Premier League teams.

Among the standout performances in the 2-2 draw was Santiago Arias was a constant threat for Colomia. The right back was allowed to get forward by Uruguay’s narrow setup, and he was a constant threat. Jose Mourinho doesn’t appear to be a fan of Matteo Darmian, and the Manchester United manager is probably looking to upgrade from Antonio Valencia at right back.

Arias is having another outstanding season at PSV Eindhoven, where he is into his fourth year as a starting right-back. His Eredivisie stats are impressive: according to WhoScored he plays 1.5 key passes a game and completes 1.8 dribbles; as well as intercepting 2.8 times a game. A balanced fullback like that would contribute to most Premier League sides, and Manchester United would be no exception.
