Manchester United to sign Nicolás Gaitán from Benfica

   Sir Alex Ferguson is looking to strengthen his midfield with the Argentine Gaitán who currently plays for Benfica. Manchester United has struck up an informal agreement with the Portuguese team to sign the attacking midfielder for around £29.3 million (aprox $38 million) at the end of the season during the summer transfer window.

   Gaitán was gaining interest from other major clubs such as Inter Milan and PSG, but the prolific Premier League champions seem to have seduce the talent of another football great who has been compared to Merengue staple Angel Di Maria. United is also looking at Benfica teammate Javi Garcia but it is unclear is further action will be pursued.

Here are some highlights of the Manchester United soon to be new signing:
