Argentine defender won’t be heartbroken to stay put.
Benfica defender Ezequiel Garay has said that he would be happy to stay at the club if a deadline day move to Manchester United doesn’t go through, Sky Sports reports.
The 26-year-old has been a reported target for the Premier League champions all throughout the summer, whilst Barcelona have also been keeping tabs on the former Real Madrid man’s situation.
Garay, who joined Benfica from Madrid in 2011, currently has two years left on his deal in the Portuguese capital, and despite the heavy interest from elsewhere a formal bid for his services has yet to be made.
However, the Argentine international is not worried whether an offer comes in or not as he has insisted that he is happy to stay with his current club beyond the end of the transfer window.
“I am under contract with Benfica and I am very happy here,” he told Portuguese newspaper A Bola.
Benfica team-mate Oscar Cardozo has also been linked with an exit this summer, but Garay says that the striker is just carrying on as normal.
“Cardozo has been training with us and we received him very well, he is another player helping us.”
