Talented attacking midfielder to arrive at Manchester United in the next week

GaitanAs one South American talent, Angel Di Maria, departs Manchester United after his short stay at the club, another exciting player looks set to arrive.

The Telegraph are reporting that the long term target for numerous Premier League clubs, Nicolas Gaitan, will be playing his last game for Portuguese outfit Benfica this Sunday.

This has come to light after the Red Devils have reached a ‘verbal agreement‘ to sign the Argentine.

In a deal that is believed to be worth around £21 million, it would see Louis van Gaal splashing the cash on yet another midfield reinforcement!

Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger have both already made the switch to the Theatre of Dreams this summer to help beef up the Dutchman’s midfield.

Some of the United Lads by the fruity here in the Transfer Tavern weren’t too sure on this one though: “£21 million seems like a lot of money to pay for an unproven player, that Portuguese league isn’t very competitive in my opinion.”

What do you think United Fans? Would you like to see this one happen? Let us know below!
