Manchester United fans are feeling optimistic here in the Football Transfer Tavern after seeing the news in the Express – which claims that United are set to submit an £18.5 million bid for Zenit St Petersburg centre-back Ezequiel Garay.
Garay, 28, is unsettled at the Russian club and is seemingly vying for a move away from the club, and it seems that Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United could be a potential destination for him in the summer.
The Argentina International has experience at plying his trade at some Europe’s biggest clubs, having had stints at Real Madrid, Benfica and Zenit St Petersburg.
As out landlord in the tavern quips, Garay undoubtedly has talent in abundance, and he could prove to be a vital addition to the Old Trafford outfit next season.
United fans over by the pool table in the Football Transfer Tavern feel this would be a very astute purchase, however all of them admit they would prefer moving for Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels.
