Manchester United target Ezequiel Garay has insisted that he is happy at current club Benfica.

26-year-old Garay, who joined the Portuguese giants from Real Madrid in July 2011, has enjoyed a starring role for the club and even notched twice in Saturday's impressive 3-1 victory over Pacos de Ferreira at Estadio da Luz. 

Such impressive form saw the Argentine international linked with a move away from the Primeira Liga this summer, with Manchester United reportedly very keen on the defender who was allegedly valued at £21.5 million by his current employers.

Garay's potential switch to the Premier League ultimately never materialised, however, and the former Racing Santander man claims that he is very happy at Benfica.

"The most important thing was to get the three points," Garay was quoted by talkSPORT.

"We are improving game by game and it's always nice to score. On a personal level, I feel good and I am very happy at Benfica, in terms of the club and with the players here."

Red Devils boss David Moyes endured a hugely frustrating first transfer window in charge at Old Trafford, with the club missing out on a number of targets prior to the deadline on September 2.

They were able to make one significant addition, however, with the capture of combative Belgian midfielder from Everton, Moyes' former club, for a reported fee of £27.5 million. 

The 25-year-old made his United debut on Saturday, coming off the substitutes bench to help his new team to a comfortable 2-0 victory over newly-promoted Crystal Palace.
