During the transfer window it’s almost impossible to decipher between what’s totally fabricated nonsense and what’s credible substance.
Personally I look for two signals when considering if United really are interested in a player or not. 1) the club officially approach/bid for a player and 2) as is the case with the Ezequiel Garay rumour, enough smoke!
Are you looking for a great Transfer Window app for your handheld? I’ve just downloaded ‘Transfer Window‘ and highly recommend it.
Today Garay has again been linked with United but, more noticeably, his probable replacement has said he is ready to step into his shoes.
Benfica have already concluded a deal for Argentine central defender, Lisandro Lopez.
Lopez, 23, has arrived from Argentine outfit Arsenal and is already being touted as Garay’s replacement. Furthermore he’s been quoted as saying “I believe in my own ability and I am ready for everything, even to replace Garay“.
The arrival of Lopez at Benfica, or his comments, obviously do not confirm Garay’s departure and it certainly doesn’t confirm he’s necessarily on his way to United, it does however, add more weight to the belief Garay will leave.
With regular, widespread, strenuous, long-term suggestions linking Garay with United coupled with the admittedly less strenuous rumours about the departure of Nemanja Vidic or United’s apparent interest in other central defenders such as Ramy Rabia, there’s enough smoke to consider (for me) that United are interested in Garay, and, if he’s leaving Benfica, it’s time to start expecting a solid bid from the club now David Moyes has officially begun his tenure.
Would you agree a bid for Garay looks ever more likely? If so, good player? Good target?
I mentioned the ‘Transfer Window‘ app at the top and, as it’s only £0.69p it’s cheap enough to see how good it is for yourself but believe me, you won’t be disappointed.
