Manchester United close in on capture of Argentina international

Nicolas GaitanManchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are wondering why Marouane Fellaini can do it on the world stage but not at Old Trafford.

But that will soon not even matter as their thoughts are soon to be focused on an impending arrival.

According to Metro, Louis van Gaal is close to making his first signing as Manchester United boss having made a £20 million bid for Nicolas Gaitan.

The Benfica winger has been on United’s radar for more than 18 months and they have now formalised their interest after the 26-year-old reportedly asked to leave the Lisbon-based club.

Manchester United’s representatives are reportedly hoping to tie the deal up in the coming days.

It could be win-win for the Red Devils as they are also willing to include Portuguese flop Bebe to speed the deal up.
