Manchester could be about to gain one of the best centre-backs in world football, as Nicolas Otamendi moved a step closer to leaving his current club Valencia CF. AS say that the Argentinian wasn’t involved in training recently as he did not feel in the right frame of mind.
The Manchester club Otamendi could end up at is still unknown, with several reports suggesting both United and City want the 27-year old at their club for the upcoming season.
Sky Sources said that Louis van Gaal have no interest in the tall centre-half, which is quite bizarre considering the current first-choice pairing is Daley Blind and Chris Smalling.
Its clear that Otamendi wants out this summer though, and his head has been turned by the interest from so called ‘larger clubs’ in him.
Wherever he ends up, he’d be a great acquisition for the Premier League.
