Manchester United and AC Milan are keeping tabs on Benfica's defensive midfielder Javi Garcia, according to a report in Cadena Cope.
The former Spain Under-21 international has been an ever-present figure in Benfica's midfield area since completing a €7 million move from Real Madrid in the summer of 2009.
And his exploits have not gone unnoticed on the continent, with a host of clubs believed to be tracking the 24-year-old.
Now, fresh reports from Spain claim that both Manchester United and AC Milan are weighing up the merits of a January move for the former Osasuna man.
Quizzed on the stories, Javi Garcia's agent, Manuel Garcia Quillon, denied having knowledge of the duo's interest, telling Antena 1: "There is nothing. He is very happy at Benfica and he will stay at the club."
