Louis Van Gaal is just two months old into his first season at old Trafford. However, he continues to face defensive nightmares forcing him to search for experienced players, more so center back players ahead of time.
Currently, the Dutch man has Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones as center backs but all of them are not performing to his expectations.
Manchester had expressed their intentions of getting back Gerard pique from Barcelona, but the center back star is not willing to leave his current club. He revealed his stand during an interview where he claimed not to be ready for any transfers from Barca.
For such reasons, the Dutch man has shifted his interest to Argentina star, Ezequiel garay. He sent two of his scouts to watch his performance during a champions league match between Zenit and Bayer Leverkusen where Garay’s side lost 2-0 to their opponents.
Ezequiel moved to Zenit from Benfica during the summer on a 12 million pound deal before van gall joined man united. However, Van Gaal believes he can convince the 28 year old defender to leave zenit for united.
If the deal is successful, Van Gaal will have to move Marcos Rojo to left back while the new arrival takes charge of the center back.
