Man Utd Fans: Here's Why Di Maria Has Told Van Gaal To Buy Gaitan
Manchester United are the latest Premier league club to be linked with Benfica ace Nicolas Gaitan, according to the Daily Express.
The Portuguese winger would considerably strengthen Man Utd's injury-prone squad, which despite possessing the likes of Di Maria, Mata, and Wayne Rooney, could always do with some more back-up. His versatility, speed and dribbling ability make him the perfect fit for the attacking style that Van Gaal has employed at Old Trafford.
Gaitan joined Benfica as a replacement for the outgoing Angel di Maria, and has been a revelation since his arrival, winning the league's Breakthrough Player of the Year award in his debut season. He isn't much of a goal threat, but his direct running and creativity can terrify defenders.
Will Gaitan be the man to take Van Gaal's team to the next level?
