Benfica defender Ezequiel Garay insists he has not reached an agreement to join Manchester United, and is happy to stay put in Portugal for the time being.

The Argentinian international has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for some time now, with reports earlier this month claiming Sir Alex Ferguson was keen on pushing through a deal for the £15 million-rated defender.

Scouts from Manchester United are said to have been impressed with Garay while watching him in action in February as the Red Devils look to rejuvenate their back line in the summer.

According to reports Chelsea are also eyeing a move for Garay, something which has forced Manchester United into acting quickly in order to ensure the 26-year-old isn't snatched from under their noses.

However according to the player himself no deal with Manchester United has been agreed, and Garay says he is happy to see out the remainder of his contract with Benfica, which expires in 2015.

He told Portuguese newspaper Record: "I know nothing about it. I have this one and two more years of contract with Benfica and it will keep me at the club. That is my intention."
