Man United transfers: Valencia prepared for Nicolas Otamendi exit, says expert
Guillem Balague says Valencia are braced to lose Nicolas Otamendi to the Premier League this summer
Valencia expect Nicolas Otamendi to complete a move to the Premier League this summer amid interest from Manchester City and Manchester United, according to Guillem Balague.
The Red Devils have been reported as favourites to sign the Argentina international throughout most of the summer, although a move has failed to materialise.
United’s bitter rivals City have also entered the race to lure the highly-rated centre-half to the Premier League as Manuel Pellegrini looks to strengthen his back four.
And La Liga expert Balague revealed that Los Che are currently weighing up offers from the Manchester clubs.

The 27-year-old defender has six goals in 38 appearances for Valencia following his move from Porto in a £8m deal in February 2014.
Otamendi has made 25 appearances for the Argentina national team in an international career spanning six years.
The South American won four league titles and the Europa League during a four-year stay at Portuguese club Porto.
