Manchester United have been given the clearest indication yet that a deal for Nicolas Otamendi could certainly take place if they want to sign him, as the usually reliable Spanish football expert Guillem Balague has claimed the player is pushing for a move away from Valencia.
The 27-year old wants a move to Old Trafford this summer, but Valencia will demand a huge €50million fee to part with one of their prized assets.
Otamendi has been in sensational form for his club this season, and he would certainly bring some much-needed experience to a relatively youthful Manchester United back line.
If there was one area United need to spend big on this summer its the defence, and bringing in Otamendi as well as one other would go an awful long way to solving those problems, and bring us one step closer to competing for the Premier League title once again.
Would Otamendi be a good signing? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
