Manchester United chase signing of league’s best winger (not Sadio Mane)

United could pull off awesome winger coup.

Manchester United are still being strongly linked with a move to sign Benfica winger Nicolas Gaitan this summer, as an alternative to Chelsea‘s new signing Pedro.

The Argentine wide-man is widely regarded as the best player in the Portuguese league, and his form down the years has repeatedly seen him linked with bigger clubs around Europe.

Liverpool have also shown an interest in him this summer, though United now look to be stepping up their interest as they eye a proven goalscorer and assist provider out wide.
