Sir Alex Ferguson has made Nicolas Gaitan his No.1 target.

The Argentina star has catapulted himself on to Manchester United’s wish list after a series of dazzling displays for Benfica.

Gaitan, 23, who only signed for the Portuguese giants for £8million just over a year ago, set up Benfica’s goal to earn a 1-1 draw against United in their recent Champions League encounter in Lisbon.

Fergie had his spies on alert even before the Euro clash, but United are not alone in their interest in the playmaker with Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan and Real Madrid all keeping tabs.

And with United’s interest in Wesley Sneijder now dormant, it seems Gaitan has become the priority, with a bid of around £25m expected in January.
