Not Hummels: Manchester United Fans Excited As £35million Transfer Edges Closer


Manchester United have moved a step closer to signing Valencia centre back Nicolas Otamendi, according to reports.

Reports claim a contract has already been agreed between the player and United, isn’t that illegal? Oh well.

Mats Hummels had been tipped to join Manchester United for the last 12 months, and looked set to be Louis van Gaal’s priority this summer. However the Dortmund defender recently committed himself to the German club, putting an end to speculation.

Otamendi appears to be very keen on a move to Manchester, with reports suggesting he has asked to leave the club. Valencia have pointed to his £35million release clause and it remains to be seen whether or not van Gaal is willing to cough up such an amount.

Most Manchester United fans seem happy for the club to pay the release clause despite it being such a high amount. As a side note Otamendi has managed six La Liga goals this campaign, not bad for a defender.
