United boss David Moyes has been keen to add some more options to his wide areas in the new year and had been keeping a close watch on Di Maria, however, any deal that could have been done there now seems to be off after it appears that he will join Ligue 1 moneybags Monaco instead.
Now sources close to the club are suggesting that he will instead pursue a deal for Gaitan, who has also been a long term target as he has seen himself become one of Europe’s brightest performers in recent seasons.
But Gaitan’s good form has seen him become a target for the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Napoli too, so it is highly probably that Moyes’ path to the player will have some obstacles on it.
United will also have a number of other targets in the winter as they look to bounce back from a disappointing summer and a less than impressive start to the campaign that currently has them in ninth place.
