Have United come reached an agreement to sign Ezequiel Garay?

Having completed the signing of Guillermo Varela yesterday, Manchester United may be on the verge of securing a second summer signing.

According to The Daily Mail, Manchester United have reached a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ with Portuguese outfit Benfica to sign former Real Madrid defender Ezequiel Garay for £17m. Taking their story from Portuguese paper The Record, the figure was said to have been agreed as far back as March.

The Argentinian has been heavily linked with Manchester United this season with United sending scouts to watch him numerous occasions, and would see United finally wrap up a move for the center back.

Incidentally The Mail quickly pulled the story from their website, perhaps due to the lack of credibility.

Whilst United’s first choice defensive pairing of Vidic and Ferdinand are getting on, there is more than enough cover at the club with the position being one of United’s strongest, making this a strange signing if indeed true.

    ‘according to the daily mail’ really is this it – get a grip please!!!

      Who took their report from a paper in Portugal, the country where Garay is based.

      A grip had been got!

    some grip…. ‘Incidentally The Mail quickly pulled the story from their website, perhaps due to the lack of credibility.’

      But because other news sources in the UK including Sky Sports have continued to run with the story, as well as the original report we deemed it news worthy.

      You could come over and show us how it’s done if I’m doing such a bad job?

    In fairness, he did say the report had been pulled… It’s not like the writer has invented this, just sharing a United related story with us, even citing the source. It’s up to us whether we believe it or not, but you cannot slate the man for relaying this info!!

    • Red Mick says:

      The source is given, and the title is in no way mis-leading?

    17 milion for Garay??Please no!!

  6. Kayzo says:

    £17m for Garray is way too much

  7. jack says:

    We don’t need a CB. Its a total waste of money. What we need is a whole new midfield including wingers an when I say whole new midfield. I mean just 2 CM an 1 winger (thiago, strootman and either bale or ronaldo) IMO!!

    With the over-rated smalling’s future in question, i doubt this is a bad move, can flog smalling once got garay done.

      Smalling over-rated?

      I genuinely don’t know what to say to you. Had a bad season but is a better defender than Jones and for me has a higher ceiling than Evans
