The Mail reports that Manchester United are set to bid for to Argentinian defender Nicolas Otamendi, and by the looks of this picture from the player's instagram, his international teammate Angel Di Maria could be the driving force in the transfer. 

Otamendi's current club Valencia have made their stance clear however - cough up his £35m release clause or no deal. 

The Argentine international only made his debut for Valencia last August but has already made his intentions to leave clear with the club. With United desperate for a half-decent defender to step into the Vidic / Rio gap, a move looks likely. Having said that, £35m for a defender is still £35m for a defender. 

Let us know what you think, Man Utd fans, and if you were wondering what all the fuss was about, watch his highlights reel below.
