Manchester United must speak to Benfica about Gaitan transfer

The agent of Manchester United target Nicolas Gaitan has revealed that he hasn't spoken to anybody regarding the possible transfer of his client, and urged any party interested in the midfielder to talk to Benfica.

Speaking exclusively to TMW, Jose Iribarren ruled out the possibility of a January transfer from Estadio da Luz as it stands, because - quite simply - there hasn't been any approach for the Argentina international.

"We start from this premise: anybody who wants Gaitan must speak with Benfica," he said. "Then, once the club accept the offer, they can talk to me.

"Personally, I have not spoken to anyone, as its clearly not appropriate for me to give away Benfica’s players."

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 ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

Paris Saint-Germain have also been mooted as admirers of the South American schemer, who could push for a move away from the Primeira Liga giants, after they crashed out of the Champions League at the group stages.

The 25-year-old is under contract with Benfica until 2016, but could still leave Portugal, if Manchester United or PSG were to step up their pursuit at the turn of the year.
