The Manchester United crowd in the Transfer Tavern have been somewhat accustomed to missing out on top targets after a protracted saga.
However, according to Portuguese outlet A Bola, the beleaguered Red Devils could be given something to cheer about at last.
Benfica midfielder Nicolas Gaitan is a name who has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for a number of seasons now, though a move for the Argentine has never materialised.
However, according to the report, the Manchester giants are closely monitoring his situation in Lisbon following interest from Atletico Madrid.
The 28-year old Argentina international is a dynamic attacker and would help provide the sort of urgency so often lacking from the Red Devils this season.
The fans within our four halls tonight are begging for him to arrive at long last.
How big a signing would Gaitan be? Is he the perfect attacker to liven up the frontline?
