Valencia defender Nicolas Otamendi has given a huge insight into where he sees his future by asking Valencia to allow him to join Manchester United this summer, according to the Metro.
The Argentine international has been linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer after his impressive form in La Liga last term caught the eye of Louis van Gaal.
The 27-year-old was named in the La Liga Team of the Year for 2014/15, finishing the campaign with an impressive six goals in 35 appearances across all competitions.
Otamendi is currently on Copa America Duty with Argentina, and has admitted that he has spoken to his club side about his future.
“I’ve spoken with my agent and Valencia know what I want,” Otamendi said.
“Therefore, every word my agent has said has obviously been with my permission and he has full permission to talk to who he wants.
“For now, like I said, my head is only with the national team so I can perform at my very best when I play. It’s a unique moment to savour.
“I spoke to the President and my agent and they know my desires very well, but for now I’ve told my agent that my head is [with Argentina] and left him to it.
“Right now, I’m enjoying each day alongside [Angel] Di Maria, [Marcos] Rojo, [Carlos] Tevez, [Lionel] Messi and the other players who are leaders here.”
