Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern were surprised to hear the reports from the Express claiming Benfica’s Nicolas Gaitan is ready to complete the transfer to Old Trafford.
The talented striker has been touted to be leaving current club Benfica this summer with Manchester United emerging as his new destination.
There were a few conversations around the dartboard here in the Transfer Tavern recently that his agent had agreed personal terms last month and is set to put pen to paper with a deal to complete the signing.
The 27-year-old will be looking for a new challenge in the Premier League and United boss Louis van Gaal is on the search to bolster his attacking options this summer after choosing not to sign Radamel Falcao when his loan finished.
