Man United have won the Competition to Finally Sign €48.8m Star

Louis Van GaalManchester United have been linked with several top defenders this summer and Valencia superstar Otamendi is among them.

The Argentine international was one of the best center backs in the Spanish league last season and helped his team qualify for the Champions League.

If reports in the media are anything to go by then Man United have won the competition to finally sign Otamendi from La Liga.

Apart from Man United, Real Madrid were keen to secure the signing of the 27 year old South American defender.

However, according to Metro, the Spanish giants have pulled out of the race to sign Otamendi because the Los Blancos believe that Manchester United have already stolen the march and agreed deal to bring star to Old Trafford from Mestalla.

Previously, Mirror reported that Otamendi has expressed his desire to leave Valencia this summer but the Spanish side want the full payment of his release clause i.e. €48.8m. Whether or not United will splash that sum to secure him, only time will tell.

    It wil be a good signing,that is if United really sign him

    My team is becoming a talk shop. Whoever is in charge of handling transfers really has lethargic approach. While teams like City , LPool , Chelski etc keep signing players …we keep being linked with players.

    I Don’t think LVG and Woodward will sign Otamendi; They are not showing any sign of seriousness in the transfer market; It has just been reported that Chealsea also wants to sign Otamendi. They should stop selling strikers before signing any; Thanks.

      Man U don’t need any striker as Fellaini can play as a striker. Chicharito, Lingard, Rooney and Fellaini can be Man U striker for next season. Priority should be signing Morgan Schneiderlin.

    I am tired of hearing all these roumous, we are not serious at all! We need to go on tour with a full team that will represent united next season. All we do is be linked with players, but have signed nobody but q palyer that is not assured of a starting posission (Depay).
