Nicolas Otamendi has confessed that he is unsure over just where he will play his football next term.

Manchester United were believed to be major suitors of Argentine defender Nicolas Otamendi in the January transfer window, but missed out on the star.

La liga side Valencia signed the 26-year-old ahead of the Old Trafford outfit and loaned him straight out to Atletico Mineiro in a strange move.

With the South American’s time in Brazil now coming to an end, Otamendi has admitted that he is unsure over what his future holds.

“It does not depend on me. It’s a possibility (to stay) that I would like because I am enjoying it at Atletico, their fans, my teammate but I have not decided. The decision is Valencia’s,” he told Globoesporte.

Otamendi is in contention to feature at this summer’s World Cup for Argentina.

However, at club level, with Valencia under financial duress there could well be another opportunity for United to revisit their attempt to sign the centre-half.
