Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have spent hours in the bar sinking pints in commiseration after a difficult week, and we’re sorry to say that the news doesn’t get better for the Red Devils.
Gaitan has been heavily linked with a switch to Old Trafford in the past year, with reports in August going as far to suggest that a £28m deal to bring the Argentine ace to the Premier League was agreed.
However, Gaitan’s future is now resolved and comes at a positive time for Benfica who, unlike United, have sealed their spot in the last 16 of the Champions League.
“The topic of leaving is expected when the market opens. It would have to be something extremely good to take me away from here because I’m happy at the club.”
United fans, does this end your interest or is Gaitan a player you need? Let us know in the comments below!
