Manchester United sold their record signing Angel Di Maria last summer and lured Dutch international Memphis Depay hoping that he will be the man to revive the attack.
However, the former PSV Eindhoven star has been one of the most inconsistent players for the Red Devils since joining the club.
Louis van Gaal has opted to keep him out of the starting XI in the last two games and rightly so after his average performances. It will not come as a surprise if Memphis is left out of the starting XI against Manchester City as well.
Manchester United were eager to hire the services of Argentine star Nicolas Gaitan in the summer as well but then opted not to pursue him even after agreeing (Mirror) a fee with Benfica.
Now, Metro cite reports in the Spanish media claiming that Man United could bid in the winter window to finally secure his signing. As per the provided Metro link, there are speculations that the player is unsure about signing a new contract with the Primeira Liga side mainly because of Man United’s interest.
Like Depay, Gaitan also plays on the left hand side of attack and should replace the Dutch star if he joins the Old Trafford club.
