It’s that time again!
Every transfer window without fail Manchester United are linked with a specific set of players, and whilst they never come off, it has become somewhat of a tradition.
It wouldn’t be a trasfer window without a Sneijder rumour would it? Gareth Bale? Been on his way to Old Trafford since he met Sir Alex as a kid.
But one of the more interesting players United have been on the cusp of signing is Benfica’s Nicolas Gaitan and guess what? He’s on his way to Old Trafford again!
Gaitan was HEAVILY linked with move to United at the start of the transfer window but as expected things went quiet.
The attacker has racked up some serious airmiles with the amount of times he has been close to a United move, so what better time to make the move a reality than as a replacement for Angel Di Maria?
With the 27 year old winger set to join PSG in the immediate future United are looking to fill the worm shaped void in the side and have identified Barcelona’s Pedro, and according to reports in Argentina (rolls eyes) Gaitan.
Argentine paper La Nacion claim that the 27 year old Benfica star will finally complete a move away from Benfica, having threatened to do so since 2011.
