Man United closing in on Di Maria replacement deal (not Pedro)

Nicolas Gaitan will play his last game for Benfica this weekend before sealing a switch to Manchester United, according to reports from Record.

The Argentine international has been aligned with the Red Devils on a persistent basis for much of the summer amid the Angel di Maria saga.

And with the former Real Madrid man on the verge of making his move to Paris Saint-Germain official, it has emerged that Gaitan could be heading to Old Trafford next week.

Reports claim that the South American attacking midfielder will feature for the Lisbon giants in the Super Cup clash with Sporting CP on Sunday, after which point he’ll be free to leave the club and join United, who could send a chunk of the Di Maria money to Benfica.

A deal for Pedro to move to the Theatre of Dreams also looks to be on the cards, but Gaitan may well be a more direct replacement, with the 27-year-old able to play in a central role, as well as from either flank.
