Manchester United fans may not like this piece of news; especially when it is coming from a journalist that is regarded as one of the most respected in the industry. According to respected journalist, James Robson, who works with the Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils are never in the race to sign Valencia defender, Nicolas Otamendi.
According to a tweet posted by Robson, all the noise about the player making a move this summer is coming from the Spanish club, Valencia.
The player, who has continued to be linked with a move to the Old Trafford all summer, is one of the most highly rated in the La Liga. Reports linking him with a move to the Red Devils were so strong towards the end of last week that talkSPORT claimed that a deal was imminent, and the player was on the verge of completing his move to the EPL.
Now it seems all stories and rumours linking the player with a move to the former EPL champions have been quashed, with Robson claiming there are no truths in them. According to the journalist, the Spanish club only used the name of the Red Devils to attract interest in the highly rated defender, who scored six goals in the La Liga last season.
Perhaps, reports linking the Red Devils with a move for Sergio Ramos were true. The player is one of the senior players at the Spanish club, and signing him would represent a significant coup for Louis van Gaal, who is trying to rebuild his team, and turn them into a winning team once again.
