Manchester United look to have been handed a major transfer boost with the news that one of their top targets has informed team-mates of his desire to move to Old Trafford.
Valencia centre-back Nicolas Otamendi has reportedly spoken to his team-mates about the prospect of a transfer to the Premier League giants, and hopes the move goes through this summer.
The £35m-rated Argentine international has had a fine season in the Spanish top flight this term, looking like one of the most solid central defenders in Europe based on recent form.
With United in need of new signings at the back, the Metro‘s report of their interest makes sense, particularly with Borussia Dortmund star Mats Hummels recently making the surprise u-turn and deciding to remain in the Bundesliga.
Otamendi looks exactly what the Red Devils need in defence, and £35m also looks a good price for a player of his quality.
