Manchester United's hopes of signing Nicolas Gaitan have been dealt a blow after Paris Saint-Germain joined the race for the Benfica midfielder's signature, reports Sky Sports.

According to the Portuguese press, the Primeira Liga giants could be forced to sell the Argentina international in January, after Jorge Jesus's side crashed out of the Champions League at the group stages.

Red Devils boss David Moyes has been credited with an interest in bringing Gaitan to Old Trafford, as he continues his search for creative midfield reinforcements when the transfer window reopens.

The Premier League champions are yet to find a suitable replacement for Paul Scholes, and with Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini both currently sidelined by injury, Manchester United are severely lacking in that department.

PSG's reported interest in the 25-year-old will leave some United fans pessimistic about their chances of securing Gaitan's services at the turn of the year, given the club's recent track record in the transfer market, in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era.
