Manchester United have been linked with a move for Valencia’s Nicolas otamendi all summer, whilst all the time Louis van Gaal’s side have denied having any interest in the 27-year old Argentine.
Reports today are suggesting that Manchester City are just a few steps away from finalising a move for the centre-back, who was one of the standouts in the Liga BBVA last term.
Although we have two clean sheets in our last two games, you can’t help but feel that a player like Nicolas Otamendi would be a superb acquisition. He has the ability to play out from the back, he’s tall, great in the air and a solid defender.
Its even more disappointing to know that he’ll probably end up at Manchester City within the next week, as reports have emerged suggesting that he has already said his goodbyes to the teammates and the fans, and he himself has asked Valencia to not play him in an upcoming friendly as he doesn’t want to risk injury.
