Jorge Mendes in Manchester to complete Nicolas Otamendi transfer

Football News

Jorge Mendes is back in Manchester, but it isn't Old Trafford he is heading for, but the city's second biggest football stadium, the Etihad.

A report in The Mail claims everyone's favourite super agent is in town to put the finishing touches on Nicolas Otamendi's move to Manchester City.

The cruel irony for United fans will be that Otamendi had long been tipped to move to the red side of Manchester only for Louis van Gaal to decide against an offer.

Manuel Pellegrini took full advantage of the situation, launching a £28.5million bid that Valencia accepted.

Both Otamendi and Mendes were in Manchester's Lowry Hotel on Monday and a move could be completed by the end of the week.

While Mendes is in town, the same report suggests, he could arrange a meeting with United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

Potential meeting

They have business regarding David de Gea to attend to with the agent now trying to push through his proposed move to Real Madrid before the end of the window.

As far as reports go, talks between United and Madrid appear to have broken down. Woodward has refused to lower his £35m asking price leaving Florentino Perez with little option but to wait to sign De Gea for free next summer.

However, there is still potential for a move and a meeting between Mendes and Woodward could be the tinder needed to get this transfer fire going again.

Otamendi is his priority for the moment with the defender expected to agree a five-year deal with the Citizens.
