Man United Deep in Talks, Closing in to Complete $27m Star Deal

Nico Gaitan BenficaHaving secured two signings to reinforce midfield and defense, Manchester United are also looking to add depth into their attacking setup.
As far as, attacking playmakers are concerned, United have two world class players in Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney as well as a bright youngster in Adnan Januzaj.
The futures of Shinji Kagawa, Nani and Valencia are in doubt and Louis van Gaal surely needs more quality and consistent players there.
According to Daily Star, Manchester United are deep in discussions with Benfica to sign the versatile attacker Nico Gaitan.
The Argentine star is not linked with a move to Old Trafford for the first time as the Red Devils were also interested in luring him under the management of Alex Ferguson.
Last season, the 26 year old scored 7 goals and provided 10 assists in 42 appearances for the Primeira Liga champions.
As per the provided link, Gaitan is rated around $27 million by Benfica which is no real concern for United as they have a huge transfer kitty available for top signings this summer.
The player has himself claimed that he might move away from Benfica to hep the club financially hence any big money move from United is likely to be considered.

“At the moment I am totally focused on playing for Benfica since I have a contract with them.”
“But I wouldn’t mind playing in a different league and, more importantly, to put the club first to help with their serious problems.”

Moreover, it is also reported that Man United star Bebe who is currently on loan playing in Portugal may as well be included in the deal to bring Gaitan to Old Trafford.

    Nicolus, Sanchez, Vidal and Mats Hammels, even Real Madrid would be shudder at the though of facing United

    I cant believe United didnt use £30 to get Miranda a CB but we are spending alot of money for attacking midfielders who we already have…….

      I disagree Isaiah, Herrera is a Box to box , central Midfielder, he isn’t either Mata or Kagawa. The only players we have in that position we have just bought is cleverly and Carrick, possibly Nick Powell but we don know Van Gaal’s plans yet for him. Luke Shaw is a good signing, as Evra is on his last legs, but is still massive to the team. £30 million for a player is quite mad, but in today’s game that is a real bargain, I know its ridiculous even reading over that bit but true.

    Our defence, midfield, and also replaced some of our old attackers, the way I am see things are going, I know this 2014-2015 league will be good for us to win all domestic cups in PL. than that will motivate MUFC supporters to believe my team MUFC is back to his pick and best of the world.

    Failing to sign miranda at dat price will be the begining of man utd mistake in transfer market, we shud be more concern in miranda better than luke shaw, if luke shaw can be £30m then miranda worth more, i don’t knw…. jez sign this mr no nonsense before its too late .

  6. I disagree with you, shaw is more useful, talented & young player than miranda as aged is no long much on his side, it is not encourageable to buy an aged player for such amount is a waist of fund, United staff are wise men in this business and they know the best period
