There’s been a real boost here in the Transfer Tavern for fans of Manchester United today, and this is thanks to news coming in from the Metro.
They are reporting that the Argentina centre back, Nicolas Otamendi, could be on his way to Manchester and they go on record to say according to Spanish football journalist Graham Hunter, Otamendi wants to move away from Valencia this summer.
The 27-year old who has been a target of the Red Devils for some time now, played a pivotal role in Argentina’s run all the way to the World Cup final last year.
With United scraping a 1-0 win against Tottenham this weekend and the club set to miss out on Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, Otamendi is looking like a perfect fit for Louis Van Gaal’s side.
A figure of around 50 million euros, £34 million, is expected to be enough to tempt Valencia to sell their star defender, and a number of United fans here in the Tavern feel this would be an astute purchase for the club – and would bolster their defensive options considerably!
What do you think United fans? Would you like to see Otamendi at United next season? Let us know below!
