Garay not for now

Catalan sports paper Sport says that Barcelona is still interested in Racing Santander central defender Ezequiel Garay (21), but that the club will reopen the negotiations later in the season, when the value of the placer can be better estimated.

Over one month ago, after the first talks, the parties involved agreed they would close the deal within one month, but since then Barcelona didn’t contact the player again. Barcelona wants to pay Santander a transfer sum of 14 million euro (plus incentives), and wants the player to accept a contract in accordance with the club’s salary policy.

The whole situation is a disappointment for Garay, who thought he would have his future assured soon and had stopped every negotiation with other interested top clubs like Manchester United and Olympique Lyon. Now that the talks with Barcelona are paralyzed, his agents have put the Argentinian defender back in the market.
