Nicolas Gaitan: Argentine midfielder has been linked with Manchester United

The 25-year-old, part of the Benfica side that finished second behind Porto in last season's Portuguese league, has been linked with Manchester United in recent years.

However Gaitan's representative Jose Iribarren has told the press in Portugal that the highly-rated player, who joined Benfica from Boca Juniors in 2010, intends to remain with his current club.

"For now, there is no formal offer," said Iribarren.

"He wants to continue at Benfica next season. We know the rumours have been appearing in the newspapers but I cannot confirm that there is particular interest from one club.

"To repeat, Nico Gaitan is calm and happy at Benfica."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
