Nicolas Gaitan's agent says that his client is "very happy" at Benfica, despite interest from other clubs.

Nicolas Gaitan is "very happy" at Benfica and not getting distracted by speculation regarding his future, according to his agent.

The Argentina international has been strongly linked with a move away from Benfica after an impressive start to his second season at the Estadio da Luz.

Both Manchester United and Manchester City are said to be interested in the creative forward, but the former Boca Juniors player's agent, Jose Irribaran, has insisted that his client is only interested in winning trophies with Benfica.

"Gaitan's goal is to play well for Benfica and be a champion at the club, where he is very happy," Irribaran told Antena 1.

"I do not know if there is interest [from United and City], but I think that any team in the world would like to have Gaitan.

"However, there is nothing yet."

The 23-year-old has a 45m release clause attached to his contract, which runs out in 2016.
