Manchester United have been dealt a huge blow in their chase for Enzo Perez, with the player set to complete a huge deal.
Louis van Gaal had identified Perez as the ideal player to add to his midfield, as he searches for a box to box player who can also offer some steel in the centre of the park.
However, the player, who has been tracked by Van Gaal, is now set to sign for Valencia, according to reports emanating from Italy.
He is currently at Benfica, but the 28 year old is now expected to have played his last game for the Portuguese giants today.
Perez moved to Lisbon in 2011, joining from Estudiantes in his homeland of Argentina.
He has impressed since moving there, winning the Portuguese player of the year award in 2014.
However, he will not be bringing that impressive form to the Premier League, instead choosing to make the trip to Spain and join the impressive Valencia.
