Louis van Gaal offers £27m to sign summer target

Published Add your comment

Manchester United have already had a £27m bid for Valencia defender Nicolas Otamendi rejected, according to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague. The Sky Sports pundit revealed there is an expectation on the Spanish club's part that the Red Devils will come back in for the Argentina international this summer, but will be required to pay the £38.2m buy-out clause written into his contract. Louis van Gaal is on the lookout for central defensive reinforcements at Old Trafford and has also been linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund captain Mats Hummels. However, Valencia remain confident that Otamendi is Manchester United's first-choice option, and believe the club will meet the South American stopper's asking price when the transfer window reopens.
