DONE DEAL: Manchester United sign Nicolas Otamendi


Manchester United has reportedly completed the signing of Valencia defender Nicolas Otamendi.

According to respected Spanish journalist Roberto Bonafont, Manchester United has got all their pieces in place to complete the signing of the 27-year-old Argentinian international centre-back, and is now clear to complete the deal after competitors Real Madrid pulled out of the race yesterday.

Valencia meanwhile has been reluctant to see Otamendi leave the Mestalla for less than his reportedly £50 million buyout clause, but after fresh talks with United it appears as if a deal has been agreed upon.
