Nicolas Gaitan is set to become the latest player to join Louis van Gaal's Manchester United revolution.

According to Portuguese newspaper Record, the Argentinian midfielder is in talks with United and incoming manager Van Gaal will have the final say over whether he wants to sign the 26-year-old or not.

The paper also claims that the forgotten man of United's midfield, Bebe, could be used as a makeweight in the deal.

Bebe was regarded as a a flop at Old Trafford, making only two league appearances since he joined from Vitoria de Guimaraes, but has impressed at Portuguese top flight Pacos de Ferreira on loan last season.

United have already signed Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilabo and Luke Shaw from Southampton this summer.
