Portuguese daily newspaper O Jogo understands that a host of Europe’s high-profile clubs are keeping close tabs on Benfica stopper Ezequiel Garay.
The Argentine defender has been on the radar of top European clubs for quite a while, and he continues to be linked with a January exit.
Garay was expected to complete a move to Manchester United in the summer, but the deal fell through after Sir Alex Ferguson had resigned from the post.
Nevertheless, O Jogo has learned that the Red Devils continue to monitor the experienced centre-back, together with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Napoli.
Ezequiel Garay joined Benfica following a somewhat disappointing spell at Real Madrid, and has since developed into one of world’s top central defenders.
He has made a total of 61 Primeira Liga appearances for the Eagles, scoring 5 goals in the process, but everything suggests he will be leaving his current employers for greener pastures in the near future.
