Man United reach ‘verbal agreement’ to sign €40m South American wing wizard

Old Trafford side ready to bring in Benfica wide-man.

Man United have reportedly reached a ‘verbal agreement’ with Benfica over their intention to sign Nicolas Gaitan should they find a buyer for Angel di Maria according to Goal.com.

The move will apparently cost the Old Trafford side €40m (£29m) and according to the Metro, could see Brazilian full-back Rafael move to the Primeira Liga champions.

27-year-old Argentine Gaitan has long been linked with a move to Man United and it’s fair to say that his compatriot di Maria hasn’t come close to justifying the British transfer record outlay of £59.7m last summer.

Gaitan has been in fine form over the past two campaigns, playing a key role in his side’s successive domestic title successes.
