Nicolas Otamendi: Why He Probably Won't Be On His Way To Man United
Looks like Moyes won't be snaring the services of long-time target Nicolas Otamendi any time soon as the Porto centre-back will probably be on his way Ukraine or Russia either this month (as the Russian window doesn't close until late-February) or in the summer, according to talkSPORT. We're sure he's going there for the pleasant footballing culture and definitely not for the money. Nope. Definitely not for that.
A flexible player equally adept at full-back or in the centre of defence and with 15 caps for Argentina to his name, Otamendi would've been a fantastic signing for a Man United side struggling to come to terms with the imminent loss of one or both of their long-serving central defenders, Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand.
Cheers up, Moyesy. At least you have Smalling.
