United have agreed to meet Benfica's £21.5 million asking price, but are haggling over the method of payment.
Garay said: “I am tired of the rumours. I am just focused on Benfica and I will keep working hard. I have heard nothing official from United.”
Garay’s wife, the model Tamara Gorro, also suggested that the deal could be off – telling her parents that the couple will now be staying in Portugal.
