Nicolas Otamendi is a top defender in La Liga, and Man United are in desperate need of a back like him.
Having cashed the check from PSG for Angel Di Maria, Man United are set to launch a new transfer bid on Valencia superstar Nicolas Otamendi.
According to the Metro, the Red Devils are putting together a significant transfer bid package for the 27-year-old Argentinian center back.
Man United received a £44 million cash injection after selling £59.7 million transfer flop Angel Di Maria to Paris Saint-Germain, giving the Red Devils more than enough cash to launch a transfer bid for just about any defensive star they have their eyes on.
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.
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.
