Latest transfer news and rumours

In the latest football transfer news, it looks like Nicolas Otamendi, the Argentinian centre back, is headed towards Manchester United.

Valencia gave the defender a miss during the recently concluded pre-season kit launch only to fuel the speculations of his Manchester United move further. This shows Valencia’s status on the current Otamendi to United saga, they seem to be resigned to the fact that the player is leaving them this summer.

It was reported earlier this week that, Otamendi would not like to report back to Valencia for the preseason training and would like to have his move finalised before that. His agent, Eugenio Lopez, hence was supposed to travel in order to finalise the intricacies of the transfer.  This was followed by the reports of him willing to go on strike in order to make the transfer happen. This is not unprecedented, however, seems like outright efforts from the ravely reviewed centre back to force the move.

These current reports, of him missing the promotional shoot for the La Liga club’s new kit only proves the points further. However, there is also a minute chance of him missing out on this shoot due to his holidays. Like several other Argentinian players, Otamendi was involved in the finals of Copa America 2015, which delayed his holiday plans hence going so deep in the pre-season.

Another reports indicate that, United are the front-runners to land the Argentinian, however the -transfer is currently stuck due to the valuation problems. Valencia are supposedly valuing there defender at £35m while United are ready to shell out much lesser amount.

Both the clubs will be hoping to finalise the deal at its earliest so that they can finalise their plans for the rest of this season. But with Valencia already accepting the bitter truth, United now need to make speedy efforts in order to land their target.

The actuality of the reason for missing the shoot is something that only Valencia and Otamendi would know, however, from the looks of it; this saga seems to be inclining United’s way.
