Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are hoping there will be a knock on effect after talkSPORT revealed that Nicolas Gaitan could leave Benfica now that Adel Taarabt has moved there.
The Red Devils have targeted the Argentine for the past few years and now they are in prime position to land their man, now that Taarabt has finally moved on from Loftus Road by mutual consent.
QPR have struggled to offload the attacking midfielder after he has struggled to prove his worth Premier League.
The signing of the Moroccan midfielder shows the Portuguese giants are preparing for life without Gaitan.
Taarabt famously has high wages and punters in the Tavern get the impression that Gaitan may have to make way for him financially.
The 27-year-old has made 37 appearances for Benfica as well as scoring four goals and Louis van Gaal is hoping the presence of his fellow countryman Angel di Maria will help lure him in.
