Mourinho chasing £15m Man United deal for Argentine defender, could replace van Gaal stalwart


While the world waits with baited breath to see if Zlatan Ibrahimovic lands at Manchester United, the Red Devils in the Transfer Tavern are scouring the net for further rumours and reports.

The more eagle eyed bunch have discovered a story from Italian outlet Tuttosport, via talksSPORT, that the Old Trafford giants are chasing £15m rated Argentina international Ezequiel Garay this summer.

Having already landed Ivorian defender Eric Bailly, it seems as if new manager Jose Mourinho is moving to restructure his defence at the Theatre of Dreams.

There are doubts over the long-term future of Daley Blind, a stalwart during Louis van Gaal’s tenure, with the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ understood to have reservations over the Dutchman.

With that in mind, he is reportedly chasing the 29-year old Zenit St. Petersburg star, who he managed briefly during his stint as Real Madrid coach.

Would Garay really be an upgrade on Daley Blind?
