Reports Manchester United have agreed a deal for Argentine winger Nicolas Gaitan appear premature.
United fans should not however get too carried away. The Manchester Evening News reports that Gaitan is not on the club's list of players to sign this summer.
Understand that, despite reports in Portugal today, Nicolas Gaitan is not one of United's targets. Just like the last time.— Rob Dawson (@RobDawsonMEN) May 27, 2015
This is far from the first time Gaitan has been linked with signing for United. The Telegraph claimed back in 2012 that the Red Devils had agreed a fee to sign the winger, but still he remains at Benfica three years on.
United have already signed one player in his position this transfer window, the promising Memphis Depay from PSV, and fans were less than enthused about yet another report from Portugal claiming they have signed Gaitan, when in all probability, they have not.

The club are yet to make a formal announcement regarding any transfer, and until they do, given the denials and past-near missed for the 27-year-old, fans will remain sceptical.
