Manchester United set to seal transfer deal with Nicolas Gaitan

Red Devils are closing in on the Argentine attacking midfielder 

Manchester United boss, Louis Van Gaal is set to sign Argentine International Nicolas Gaitan, with reports suggesting that the midfielder’s agent, Jorge Mendes is already on his way to hold talks with Old Trafford crew. Superstar agent Jorge Mendes is agent to many star footballers including Cristiano Ronaldo, who had also been associated with a switch to Manchester United this summer.

Gaitan has been linked with a move to Old Trafford since every transfer window in past two years. And, this time, it seems very likely that the Red Devils will finally acquire the services of Gaitan before transfer window shuts down on September 1st. Louis Van Gaal has reportedly offered  a transfer deal worth £28 million for the recruitment of Argentine International.

The 27-year-old Nicolas Gaitan currently plays for Portuguese club SL Benfica, wearing 10 number shirt.  To date, he has notched up 20 goals in 79 league games for Portuguese giants.
