Manchester United receive boost in race to sign £17m ace

Published Add your comment

Manchester United have been given a boost in the race to sign Benfica defender Ezequiel Garay, according to talkSPORT.

Reports suggest Garay has been told by Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella to reject interest from Russian outfit Zenit St Petersburg.

The 27-year-old defender has been linked with a move away from Portugal for some time now as Garay is looking to join a top European side.

Garay, who is said to be valued at around £17million, could seal a move to Russia on Thursday as their transfer window closes later tonight.

However Argentina national team boss Sabella has told Garay to reject interest from Zenit as he believes a move to Russia could unsettle the defender before next summer's World Cup campaign in Brazil.

The former Real Madrid defender is said to be high up on David Moyes' shopping list - along with the likes of Eliaquim Mangala, Ilkay Gundogan and Diego Costa.
