Whether Pedro Rodriguez or Nicolas Gaitan will be the better replacement for Angel di Maria, it really does not matter at this moment because United are linked to sign both superstars.
As far as the latest news on the Argentine playmaker Nicolas Gaitan is concerned, he is being advised by current Benfica team mate to stay at the club.
Star striker Jonas who netted 31 goals for the Portuguese giants last season wants Gaitan to snub any potential move and stay with Benfica.
“We know there are clubs that are interested in signing him (Gaitan) but, for me in particular, I would love it if he stays because he provides a lot of assists. Not just for me, but also for Lima.
“He is a player who gives a lot to the team with his determination and quality.“
Jonas has arguably explained all the reasons why Manchester United are eager to secure the signing of this amazing South American playmaker.
Last season, Nico Gaitan created no fewer than 15 goals in 26 starts in the Primeira Liga.
Previously, it has been reported that Manchester United have agreed $32.8m fee with Benfica to sign Gaitan. It remains to be seen whether the attacker will listen to his team mate and stay put or opt to join the Red Devils.
