Manchester United are close to a deal for Benfica defender Ezequiel Garay.

TMW says United have struck a deal for £17.2m with Benfica for the Argentine.

The 26-year-old has been high on United's wish list for a while and he was recently reported to be house hunting in Manchester.

United are in need of another defender, especially with Nemanja Vidic missing United's pre-season tour through injury.
