Manchester United must sign a top quality striker this summer but for now they are more focused on luring playmakers if reports are anything to go by.
Captain Wayne Rooney is the only senior striker in the squad and if the England international gets injured, Louis van Gaal’s side could be in serious trouble.
The Red Devils boss has also utilized Dutch attacker Memphis Depay as a striker in the pre-season but the former PSV Eindhoven playmaker is not an out and out forward and must be used in his preferred left wing position.
Speaking of playmakers, Metro claim that according to Portuguese source O Jogo, Manchester United have reached agreement to sign Benfica playmaker Nicolas Gaitan and the Argentine will finally arrive at Old Trafford for a fee of 30 million Euros.
The 27-year-old star is a quality dribbler, someone who can effectively work with both feet and provided no fewer than 16 assists last season for the Primeira Liga giants.
Man United must act swiftly to secure Gaitan signing so that he can arrive in time to register and feature against Spurs next weekend.
