Nicolas Otamendi puts in transfer request

The Argentine international has reportedly told Valencia that he wants to leave the Mestalla in favour of a move to Manchester United

Louis van Gaal is really very keen on bringing the stylish defender to Old Trafford this summer and after a lot of discussions, the player has gone to the club’s management and asked it to let him join the English Premier League giants.

Reports claim that Los Che would be willing to do business with the Red Devils if they are in turn willing to pay 35 million euros for the defensive linchpin. Moreover, the club is also exploring the possibility of a player exchange with an option to bring Adnan Januzaj on loan for the season also being considered seriously.

However, LVG does not want to loan out the young Belgian this summer and is keen to give him more chances to prove his worth this summer which means that Ed Woodward will once again try to be the dominant one like he has been so far this summer when it comes to transfer dealings.
