PICTURE: Garay drops public hint he may join Manchester United

by Sam Peoples

picture-garay-twitterEzequiel Garay has dropped a potentially not so subtle hint that he may join Manchester United this summer on his Twitter account.

The last account that the 26-year-old defender followed on his official Twitter was @ManUtd_Es, an account dedicated to Spanish translations of purely United news.

And out of his other 634 followers, the only other United related account he follows is @WayneRooney way back in the first 100 people he followed on Twitter.

Garay’s last tweet was eight days ago and he may have followed the account at any time but he sits 10th in my ‘People you may know’ following @ManUtd_Es section, so it cannot have been too long ago.

Last week, there was news of him house hunting in England and today, his potential replacement Lopez publicly today stating he was ready to step into Garay’s shoes were he to depart, it coincides rather well.

It would seem strange that a player involved in such a potentially high profile transfer would make a judgement of error such as this given the prominence of advisors in the modern game.

So, of course, this could all be a perfect publicity stunt by his agent Jorge Mendes. Alternatively, he may just want to be kept in the loop regarding United news but I doubt it very much.

A simple follow of a United based Twitter account is enough to keep the rumour mill turning, so it may be nothing more than a surface deep rumour instigated by the player’s management itself. Either way, the rumours of Garay coming to Old Trafford are certainly not fading away as this latest revelation has shown.

I think our defence is the strongest in world football IF we have a strong midfield to go with it. garay wont change a thing if we don’t buy thiago and strootman for our midfield . why are we taking long for these two I don’t know, they both have a huge future ahead of them and we should snap them up.

and no way should vidic our captain leave for any defender in th world!

just buy thiago and stootman, we will be the best team in Europe, last year we got unlucky by having a corrupt bias referee who always favour real Madrid or barca.
take your mind back to when rvp got sent off for arsenal against barca at camp nou, or Chelsea at the bridge against barca when also iniesta took his shirt off after scoring which should have been a second yellow an msse the final. I bet if that was any English team player you would see a harsher outcome.

teams from England get unfair treatment in Europe and he FA should use their brains and pay attention is they want the English teams to be treated fairly in Europe and even win.

I think they referees we see are not the best and uefa should be punished just like anybody else responsible for their jobs in any walk of life.

My personal hope is with the FA and that they wake up!
