Manchester United are clearly in pursuit of at least one new centre-back this summer, and a player thought to be at the top of that list is the Argentinian defender, Nicolas Otamendi. The 27-year old has been in superb form for Valencia this season.
Louis van Gaal is clearly a big fan of the centre-half, and United have been boosted in their pursuit of him as according to the Spanish media outlet AS, Otamendi has told his teammates that he wants a move to the Premier League this season.
However the same paper go on to say that Valencia are planning to use him in their latest commercial as the club are worried he may leave.
Otamendi would be a fantastic signing for United. He has that experience we need at the heart of our defence and he’d be able to guide our younger defenders through games.
Would Otamendi be a good signing? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
