Nicolas Gaitan has played down talk of a possible summer transfer to Manchester United by insisting that he is happy at Benfica.

Gaitan has long been linked with a move 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 this summer as his future at Benfica continues to be a source of speculation.

However, the attacking midfielder has moved to pour cold water on reports linking him with a move away from Benfica this summer by insisting that he is happy at the Portuguese club.

“I am well at Benfica,” Gaitan told Portuguese daily Record. “I have a contract.

“During the holidays they said I’d been sold, but today I’m here. It’s always the same story.”
