£36.2m Man United target’s agent ready to discuss move

Nicolas Otamendi’s agent is ready to sit down with Valencia officials later this week to discuss a summer move to Manchester United for his client, according to reports from Super Deporte.

The Argentine is currently away with his nation at the Copa America, but speculation surrounding his future and a move to Old Trafford has gone into overdrive of late.

Louis van Gaal is thought to have outlined Otamendi as a key target for the coming transfer window, however, Los Che are reluctant to do business unless his €50m (£36.2m) release clause is triggered.

Such a sum is a vast one for a defensive player and reports claim that the South American is frustrated that issue surrounding his fee has left his future uncertain.

His agent, Eugenio Lopez, is now ready to attempt to sort the situation, with talks set for later this week.
