Man United transfers: Agent confirms Nicolas Gaitan talks

Nicolas Gaitan is in talks with Manchester United about a possible summer transfer, his agent has revealed

Nicolas Gaitan is in talks with Manchester United about a potential transfer to Old Trafford this summer, the Benfica midfielder’s agent has revealed.

Gaitan has long been linked with a transfer to Old Trafford and has again been touted as a possible target for the Red Devils in recent weeks as Louis van Gaal looks to bolster his squad ahead of his second season in charge of the club.

The 27-year-old has also reportedly attracted interest from Spanish sides Atletico Madrid and Valencia in recent weeks as his future at Benfica continues to be a source of speculation.

Now, Gaitan’s agent Jose Irribarren appears to have confirmed that a move to United could be on the cards for his client.

Irribarren is quoted as saying by the Daily Express: “Everything can happen. Negotiations exists, but we’re waiting for an answer from the leader of Manchester United.”
