The form of Benfica ace Nicolas Gaitan has suffered in recent weeks as speculation intensifies over a mooted move to Manchester United.

Gaitan has been left out of the starting line-up by Benfica coach Jorge Jesus in recent games as the scrutiny takes its toll.

"Gaitan? He's been training, but has some problems," argued Jesus over his latest decision to omit the winger from his line-up. "He's played many games and is now suffering from fatigue."
