Early on Friday morning Portuguese news outlet Record reported that Manchester United and Benfica have a gentleman’s agreement over the transfer of central defender Ezequiel Garay.
The 26 year old has long been linked to Old Trafford but it is now clear Benfica are willing to let him leave, but only for a fee of €20 Million.
Ex Real Madrid man Ezequiel Garay has reportedly been looking for a home in Manchester despite the fee of €20M proving a stumbling block in the negotiations.
United are allegedly looking to spend less on a centre back and Garay understands that he may have one more season to play at Benfica.
