Long-term Manchester United target Nicolas Gaitan may be about to leave Portuguese Champions Benfica.
Ben Jefferson of the Express writes that Benfica may let Gaitan go due to financial instability, with the player's agent admitting they will consider offers.
Gaitan's agent Jose Iribarren said, per Jefferson:
"We've had many conversations about Gaitan in recent years but at the moment he is a Benfica player and only the club can make a decision on whether to release the player or not. If a potential buyer makes an offer that interests Benfica, we will carefully consider it."
Gaitan has been linked with United many times over the years and this could be their chance to finally grab the player.
