Transfer news: Nicolas Otamendi still open to Premier League move - reports
Defender linked with Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City
Wednesday 29 January 2014
Porto's Nicolas Otamendi, previously linked with Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United, is still open to a Premier League move, according to reports, after his loan move to Valencia fell through.
It is thought that the Argentine defender was close to moving to Valencia but that the demands of Porto were too great for the cash-strapped Spaniards.
Both Jose Mourinho and Manuel Pellegrini are known to be fans of the player and the latter could make a move as he looks to bolster a defence that currently includes Martin Demichelis.
Manchester United are another club thought to be interested in the player although it is understood that they are yet to make any offer.
Otamendi is thought to be keen on a move in order to seal his World Cup place for Argentina.
He currently has 16 caps for the Albiceleste after making his debut under Diego Maradona back in 2009.
