Manchester United are preparing a huge £28 million bid for Benfica midfielder Nicolas Gaitan, as reported by the Daily Star.
The attacking midfielder has impressed since joining Benfica from Argentine side Boca Juniors in 2010, and as a result, has been consistently linked with a switch to Premier League sides in recent seasons.
Chelsea were thought to be targeting a move for the Argentinian attacking midfielder in the near future, but it now seems as though Man Utd have reentered the race for the star.
They were consistently linked with a move for him in the summer, but their attentions turned to record breaking signing Angel Di Maria towards the end of the transfer window.
However, recent reports now suggest that Louis van Gaal, Man Utd’s manager, has reinvigorated the move for Gaitan, hoping him to bring him to the club in the near future.
He is willing to spend a huge £28 million to bring him in.
