Who really knows what’s going on anymore. After reports broke over the weekend that Nicolas Otamendi was way down Manchester United’s wishlist, there’s been a twist.
And this time, there’s some pretty reputable sources. A lot of regional newspapers in the Valencia area are reporting that Saturday was a big day for developments.
Right now Nicolas Otamendi is enjoying an extended holiday and is not yet training with Valencia, due to his Copa America involvement. But it’s this coming week that Otamendi is due to make his return to the club. That’s caused all parties to step it up a gear as they want a resolution before training begins.
On Saturday, in Porto, Portugal, Nicolas Otamendi’s agent, Eugenio Lopez met with super agent and deal broker, Jorge Mendes. When Mendes gets there’s always a deal to be had. He brokered Ronaldo to Real Madrid and James Rodgriguez as well as many others.
Mendes has been in contact with Manchester United who are now set to make a bid this week. But there is a twist. Mendes has close ties with Manchester City and has seen a number of his players go there, such as Mangala. There was also a meeting with City representatives on Saturday and they too are set to make a bid.
Things are about to get very interesting this week.
