Manchester United are wasting their time on pursuit of £17m star

Manchester United gave always had a strong depth in their squad when it comes to defending. Probably the best defense lineup in the Premier League with the likes of ever reliable Jonny Evans, the dominant Phil Jones, the beast of Nemanja Vidic and the calmness of Chris Smalling, Manchester United are ready to win much silverware in the near future.

Rio Ferdinand has been an excellent servant for Manchester United and he is definitely a legend. When Rio Ferdinand finally hangs up his boots- which many expect will be at the end of the current season- most Manchester United fans would be forgiven for thinking that David Moyes will have already embedded his replacement into the first-team squad.

With the general consensus being that the Scot will use a portion of his January war-chest to finance the purchase of new centre-half, there’s been a fair amount of speculation surrounding who will be added to the defensive roster at Old Trafford as they look to strengthen their back line for the future.

Despite the fact that Garay was long-term transfer target of the recently retired Sir Alex Ferguson, I can’t help but question what the 27-year-old would add to the United squad that they don’t already have.

Manchester United should really be looking with concentration into strengthening their midfield which is lackluster and static at the moment. Their major concern is also to replace the great long serving veteran, Patrice Evra. Considering the quality in their defense department and the quality in their youth ranks a center back should be the last of their concerns.
