Chelsea sent scouts to Benfica’s Stadium of Light on Thursday night to watch highly-rated defender Ezequiel Garay, according to the Daily Mirror website
It is no secret that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is a massive fan of the mans ability and is looking to add to his back line, with David Luiz tipped to leave and John Terry coming towards the end of his career.
And scouts must have been impressed as the 27-year-old Argentine scored the opening goal as Benfica beat Spurs on aggregate to reach the Europa League quarter-finals.
His central defensive partnership at the other end of the field, however, with Brazilian Luisao has been pivotal as the club close in on the Portuguese title.
However, the man knows he may not be first choice at the bridge and may feel the Stamford Bridge is not the place for him.
