United close in on big-money attacker.
Manchester United look close to signing Benfica winger Nicolas Gaitan in an exciting move to replace departing star Angel Di Maria, according to sources in Spain.
The Red Devils are long-time admirers of the Argentine international, who has also been linked with the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea in recent months.
After impressing in Portugal for the last few years, Gaitan may now be ready for a bigger challenge in a more competitive league, and seems set to move to Old Trafford for somewhere in the region of £22-25m.
