€40m Argentina star on United & Liverpool radar

Published Add your comment

Manchester United and Liverpool are reportedly back in the race to sign highly-rated Argentine international Nicolas Gaitan.

The 24-year-old attacking midfielder has been linked with a move to the Premier League on a number of occasions in the past, with both the Reds and Red Devils said to be keen on the player at separate times over the past 24 months.

Benfica were able to keep hold of the South American during the summer transfer window, but newspaper A Bola now claims that the Premier League giants are once again keeping tabs on the player, despite the huge €40 million release clause that has been reported.

Gaitan, who has six-caps for his country, started his career with Boca Juniors before moving to Benfica in 2010. And, in two years at the Estadio da Luz, his reputation has rocketed, leading to interest from European suitors.

Sir Alex Ferguson signed Shinji Kagawa in the summer transfer window, but with Paul Scholes reaching the later stages of his career at Old Trafford, the Scot could be looking for other potential replacements for the Manchester United legend.

Gaitan would also be seen as another potential cog in the Brendan Rodgers machine at Anfield, and his passing style at Liverpool could sit well with the talented Primeira Liga star.
