Manchester United bid 35 million euros for Nicolas Otamendi

Manchester United have reportedly had a 35 million bid for Nicolas Otamendi rejected by Valencia CF.

Manchester United are looking to strengthen their squad this winter and their defense has been the primary concern so far in the season, with the club being linked to various defenders from Thiago Silva, Pique and Mats Hummels in the past. They have also been interested in Nicolas Otamendi throughout the current season and his superb performances had made him the primary target.

Now it seems Manchester United have decided to acquire Nicolas Otamendi and offered 35 million euros to Valencia CF, but the club has rejected that offer and is planning on keeping the defender in its ranks long term. With Peter Lim at the helm of the club these kind of offers are no longer relevant and the team isn't forced to sell any players, certainly not one of its best players.

Nicolas Otamendi also has a long term contract with Valencia CF so even really reputable clubs like Real Madrid or Bayern Munich won't matter, as Valencia CF can just reject any offers and keep the player, with his release clause being set at a huge 50 million euros. Something that would be a world record for a defender if someone was to reach it, which is highly unlikely.
