It seems like not long ago United made their deadline day swoop to bring Anthony Martial to the club, when realistically it isn’t that far away from the winter transfer window opening, with the rumours already coming left, right and centre.
According to the Portuguese media outlet A Bola, Manchester United have already agreed a £22million fee to sign the Argentinian winger Nicolas Gaitan from SL Benfica.
The rumours for Gaitan just don’t seem to go away, and it feels like for each of the last three or four transfer windows, the club have been linked with a move to bring the 27-year old to Old Trafford.
There is no denying that Manchester United are still short in the wide areas, but I’m not overly convinced that Nicolas Gaitan will solve those problems. I’d like to see someone with a bit more pace come in as Louis van Gaal enjoys playing on the counter attacking.
