Man Utd step closer to landing Gaitan as Benfica swoop for Ola John

Manchester United are edging closer to landing Benfica winger Nicolas Gaitan.

Benfica have all but closed a deal for FC Twente winger Ola John, who is viewed as a direct replacement for Gaitan.

Benfica and United are understood to have a 'gentlemen's agreement' over an end of season deal for Gaitan. The Argentine should move to Old Trafford for €25 million plus the loan of two United young players.
