Metro have our Manchester United fans on the edge of their stools here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim United are about to secure Nicolas Otamendi.
The club have been chasing the defender for some time now, and with Chelsea also reportedly in the mix for the player, who is keen to leave Valencia, Louis van Gaal has instructed his board to move quickly and make sure the player ends up wearing red and not blue come August.
We think it would be a huge move for United, and after the club sorted out their midfield, our regulars quipped their leaky defence would be next – and it certainly seems as though that will be the case looking at this.
United fans. Is this exactly the kind of player who can bring you the title next season and get you back on top? Let us know your thoughts below.
