AS Monaco in talks to sign Ezequiel Garay

Get French Football News understands that AS Monaco are in talks to sign SL Benfica central defender Ezequiel Garay and that initial discussions have been positive. 

Garay, 27, has been monitored by the Ligue 1 club for several months since the turn of the calendar year and negotiations with Benfica are set to reach an advanced stage shortly. 

L’Equipe’s understanding this morning that Benfica manager Jorge Jesus is very close to agreeing to become the new manager of Monaco will make a move for Garay even more probable as he looks to bring with him a constant from Portugal to France. 

If Jesus does sign for Monaco, Garay is fully expected to join him.
