Nicolas Otamendi is a top defender in La Liga, and Man United are in desperate need of a back like him.
Man United are in serious need of a big-time defender, but with Sergio Ramos off the market, the Red Devils have lined up a deal for Valencia star Nicolas Otamendi.
According to the Metro, Otamendi is “just a few details away” from joining Man United on a transfer projected to be in the area of £35 million.
The Metro reported that Valencia-based TV station SillasGol are revealed that Otamendi is now closer than ever to a move to Old Trafford.
Though Man United have reportedly been extremely interested in Real Madrid superstar Sergio Ramos to add to their defense, Louis van Gaal has apparently decided to move on since the La Liga giants have refused to sell.
Nicolas Otamendi was named to the 2014-15 La Liga team of the season after setting a career-high with 6 league goals in his first full season with Valencia.
