The latest Manchester United transfer news, views and rumours.
Indeed, Record (whose findings have been translated by Sport Witness) claim United have made a bid superior to that of Atletico Madrid and Monaco's.
The Argentine winger most heavily linked to the club this summer, of course, has been Angel Di Maria of Real Madrid, although the Portuguese press claim it is Gaitan that has attracted an official bid.
The 23-year-old England striker reportedly felt as though his future in Manchester was safe.
Elsewhere, former United stars Andy Cole and Dennis Irwin have told ITV Sport that they believe Van Gaal will bring the 'fear factor' back at Old Trafford.
The Dutchman lost his opening Premier League match 2-1 to Swansea City but takes his side to Sunderland on Sunday hoping to bounce back with three vital points.
However, Cole has also warned that Manchester United can no longer attract the best players on the market due to their lack of Champions League football.
