Deal done: Man Utd send Fabio, Macheda to Benfica for Gaitan

Manchester United have struck terms with Benfica for winger Nicolas Gaitan. The Telegraph says United have agreed a deal to sign the Benfica midfielder Gait√°n with both Fabio da Silva and Federico Macheda moving to the Portuguese club as part of the terms.

The details of the deal are likely to see Fabio going only on a season's long loan while Macheda's transfer could be a permanent one, with Manchester United then reducing some of the costs of acquiring the highly-rated Gait√°n.
