Gifted Star Very Close to becoming Man United’s 6th Signing

Louis Van GaalManchester United manager Louis van Gaal has mainly focused on reinforcing the midfield department this summer.

Since the retirement of legendary Alex Ferguson, midfield has been United’s biggest concern. The dilemma should finally be over after quality acquisitions of Schneiderlin and Schweinsteiger.

The Red Devils are now very keen on improving their attack. Early on in the window, the Old Trafford club secured the signing of Dutch winger Memphis Depay who was Eredivisie’s top scorer last season.

However, now that the record signing Angel di Maria is joining French giants Paris Saint-Germain, United are eager to bring in quality players to replace the Argentine playmaker.

According to reports, another gifted Argentinian, Nicolas Gaitan is very close to joining Manchester United. He will play his last game for the Primeira Liga side this weekend ahead of United move.

As per the provided Metro link, a verbal agreement is already in place between United and Benfica and Gaitan is preparing to move to Old Trafford. The 27-year-old playmaker is set to become Man United’s 6th signing of the summer.

    Let all the stars of the world join Manchester United, but Louis van Gaal must be strict and kind hearted. Ed Woodward must stop selling players as cheap as he is doing.

    Basing on reality Gaitan and Pedro are very good and I want them to be signed very fast, but there is one thing that is out of the mind of LVG and that is signing a lithel striker that can replace RVP; If I was to be LVG, I would sign LACAZATTE; Thanks.
