The agent of Ezequiel Garay expects the Benfica defender to complete a move to Zenit St Petersburg in the near future.

Ezequiel Garay's agent has claimed that the Argentine defender is on the verge of signing for Zenit St Petersburg.

The Benfica centre-back, who is currently on international duty at the World Cup with Argentina, had previously been linked with a switch to Manchester United.

However, according to his representative Rafael Zurro, the 27-year-old will soon be confirmed as a Zenit player.

"The deal will be finalised without any problem, there will be news between Wednesday and Thursday," Zurro told Ole.

It has been reported that Zenit will part with £15m to land the defender.
