Manchester United 'plotting summer swoop for Ezequiel Garay'

Manchester United are said to be the frontrunners to sign highly-rated Benfica defender Ezequiel Garay.

Manchester United are reportedly planning to table a bid for Benfica defender Ezequiel Garay.

David Moyes's side are the frontrunners to secure the services of the sought-after Argentina international, according to The Mirror.

United are thought to be aiming to agree a fee for the centre-back before this summer's World Cup finals, with Manchester City and Zenit St Petersburg also said to be monitoring the situation.

Garay reportedly has a release clause of around £17m in his contract, but the Red Devils are apparently hoping to land him for a cut price, as there is one year remaining on his existing deal.
