Forget Gaitan – Man United Closing in to Sign £50m Playmaker

Marco Reus DortmundDefense has been the most concerning department for Manchester United this season. Many a times, David de Gea’s heroics saved the shambolic United defense.

Whether or not Spanish international will be at Old Trafford next season is another matter but Louis van Gaal must sign top quality defenders if they are to challenge for the title next season.

However, for now it seems the Red Devils are way too much focused on bringing in quality attackers.

They already have world class players like Angel di Maria and Juan Mata around in the playmaking department. United have also added exciting Dutch star Memphis Depay into the mix.

Moreover, reports also claim that United have agreed deal for Benfica winger Nicolas Gaitan and the move could be announced next week.

If that is not enough, Metro also report that now Manchester United are closing in to sign one of the best playmakers around in the form of German international Marco Reus.

As per the provided link, Van Gaal is seriously considering 50 million pounds offer to bring Reus to Manchester United.

If interest in Reus is strong then it will be better to move for the Dortmund superstar instead of Gaitan given that the club already has ample attackers in the squad.

The Kaiser has been injured on and off this season for Borussia Dortmund. In 28 games, the 25 year old star has scored 11 times and provided 6 assists this season.

In Your Opinion, Should United sign Gaitan or Reus?

    United are right in my opinion to sign both players, because united like to get injuries alot and with gaitan and reus in the team that will force Di maria to rediscover him best form again, even mata Will try to up his game and play better than anyone again
