La Liga side are keen to stop Van Gaal signing one of their best players

Valencia are still trying desperately to stop Nicolas Otamendi from leaving this summer, despite the fact the Argentina international has been hotly linked with a move to Manchester United. That’s according to club legend Mario Kempes, who says that it won’t be long before Otamendi decides to give up on his ambitions to move to pastures new. Any self-respecting United fan will tell you that Louis van Gaal needs to sign a new centre-back, so we’re not sure where that leaves him. It’s highly likely we’ll find out in the coming days though. Meanwhile Angel Di Maria has issued an apology-ridden farewell letter to United fans, claiming he’s ‘sorry’ things didn’t work out. The Argentina international said he did his best at Old Trafford but it simply wasn't meant to be. Unsurprisingly he didn’t mention the fact that he went AWOL before pushing for a move to PSG. We’re not sure why.
