Terms AGREED – Man United Closer to €50m Star Signing

Otamendi ValenciaManchester United are willing to do anything to sign a top quality central defenders in the summer transfer window.
The player who has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford is Valencia star Nicolas Otamendi.
The Argentine international has been one of the best central defenders this season and has a huge release clause of €50m, one that not many clubs can match.
As per the provided Deporte Valenciano link, Manchester United are desperate to sign a central defender of Otamendi’s quality,  have already agreed on the player’s personal terms and are clear favorites to seal his signing as the asking price is not problem for them.
Deporte Valenciano also reports that Atletico Madrid are interested in securing the services of 27 year old star but it is highly difficult for them to lure him for several reasons.
One, Atletico are currently behind Valencia in La Liga who are favorites to qualify for next year’s Champions League. Moreover, Otamendi is fan favorite, currently club’s best player and will not be allowed to leave for cheap while Atletico are not very strong financially.
Adding to that, Valencia will also prefer that the player moves abroad as selling to a team in the same league may as well haunt them.
Manchester United did send officials to Spain ahead of bid for the star player and as it stands are closer to signing, or it should be said closest to signing Otamendi in the summer transfer window.

    Despite these defender interest being good, United main and major problem in the team is a box to box ball winner and a faster creative midfielder of which Di Maria is failing do.

    I’ve read that headline many times before on this websites at season. Hit rate extremely low so I will only believe same if confirmed by Manchester United. Until then it’s just the usual ‘click bait’ tactic used by poor journalism. Happy to be proven wrong though!
