Nicolas Otamendi sends strong message to Manchester City fans on social media

Nicolas Otamendi was linked with a move to Manchester United before he joined Manchester City.

Newly-signed Manchester City defender Nicolas Otamendi has taken to social networking site Twitter to make it clear what the fans can expect of him this season.

The 27-year-old defender has joined Premier League giants City from Spanish club Valencia on a five-year contract.

According to Sky Sports, the Citizens had to pay as much as £33 million as transfer fee to secure the services of the Argentina international centre-back.

Otamendi has now taken to Twitter and Instagram to make it clear that he is going to give his all for City.

Interestingly, Manchester United were reported to be interested in Otamendi before their city rivals swooped in.

According to ITV, the former FC Porto star was a target for Louis van Gaal’s side earlier this summer.

The former Velez Sarsfield star scored six goals and created three chances in 35 La Liga appearances for Valencia last season.

Otamendi had a pass accuracy of 79% and a shot accuracy of 60%, and won 115 headers, six dribbles and 74 tackles.
