Manchester United transfer news: Otamendi wants Old Trafford move; PSG closing in on Di Maria

Manchester United Old Trafford

A select round-up of the latest news relating to Manchester United

According to a report from the Sun, Valencia defender Nicolas Otamendi is prepared to go on strike in order to force through a move to Manchester United this summer.

The Argentine international was one of La Liga’s star performers last season but the report claims his current club want no less than £37million for him.

The player allegedly fears that could price him out of a move to United, who have impressed with their summer business to date.

Things slipped into gear at the weekend when Matteo Darmian was quickly followed by Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin but United do still need a centre-back and a striker so their dealings may not be over yet.

In other news, French newspaper Le Parisien reports that United’s club-record signing Angel Di Maria has already agreed a five-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain but negotiations between the two clubs are still taking place.

Di Maria had a disappointing debut season after an impressive start, and it remains to be seen if he will get the chance to show what he can do now he is more settled in England.

The latest report claims PSG are confident of securing a deal for £42.2million, which would still be a significant hit considering United signed him for £59.7million just 12 months ago.
