Nicolas Gaitan BenficaManchester United are on the verge of signing Benfica star Nicolas Gaitan.

That is according to Portuguese newspaper A Bola, who claim Gaitan is expected to join United ‘by the end of this week’.

Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal has set his sights on the 27-year-old winger as a replacement for Angel Di Maria, who was sold to Paris Saint-Germain last week for £44million.

United have reportedly had a £28m bid accepted for Gaitan this summer, with super-agent Jorge Mendes believed to be on his way to Manchester to wrap up the deal.

The Argentina international has also attracted interest from Premier League rivals Liverpool, as well as La Liga club Valencia.

United have already welcomed new recruits Morgan Scheniderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Matteo Darmian and Memphis Depay ahead of their return to the Champions League.

Van Gaal is also believed to have set his sights on Bundesliga pair Julian Draxler and Mario Gotze and want-away Barcelona forward Pedro.
