Valencia have confirmed a £27m bid for Nicolas Otamendi has been rejected but haven’t identified what club submitted the offer.
Earlier this afternoon, Guillem Balague said Manchester United were the club who had an offer for Otamendi rejected. However, Sky Sports asked sources at Man United about the bid but they have insisted the bid has not come from Louis van Gaal‘s side.
Otamendi, 26, has been linked with a move to Old Trafford thanks to Man United’s ongoing defensive issues as van Gaal is expected to strengthen his options over the coming transfer windows. As well as Otamendi, multiple defenders including Mats Hummels and Diego Godin have also been linked.
This story with Otamendi has developed quite quickly over the last 12 hours to the point where Valencia have confirmed a bid has been rejected but at this stage sources at United are adamantly denying it has come from Van Gaal’s side.
We expect there to be more developments in the coming days as there are less than two weeks left in the transfer window and we will bring you the latest updates as soon as they happen.
