Manchester City are set to snatch Nicolas Otamendi from Manchester United right under their noses as the Valencia defender is set to fly into Manchester for a medical and finalization of a transfer to the blue side of Manchester.
Manchester United have been heavily linked with Otamendi for months but Manchester City swooped in last week to try and make a deal happen with the view of strengthening their defense in anticipation of a tough season. It wasn’t long before a 25 million pound deal was being negotiated. With Negotiations at an advanced stage, Otamendi is set to complete the move today as the Argentine would be flying into Manchester from Spain to meat with Manchester City officials according to Goal.com
If Manchester City can complete this deal, they would kill two birds with one stone as they would strengthen their side whilst at the same time weaken Manchester United, their biggest rivals
