Real Madrid want to sign a full back in the next transfer market and they are thinking in the signing of a Manchester City defender, Otamendi. It looks like Pepe will leave Madrid at the end of the season because his contract finishes the 30th June of 2017. Los Blancos also have doubts with Varane’s continuity, because he is having a lot of physical problems which prevents him to play with continuity.
According to El Confidencial, Jorge Mendes has offered Real Madrid Nicolás Otamendi, a full back who played a really good season in his stage at Valencia, but since his signing with The Citizens, he is not showing the high level he showed at Spain. The Argentinian full back is a very good player who has played at Porto, Atletico Mineiro and Valencia.
He can be a good player for Real Madrid because the team managed by Zinedine Zidane is having certain problems in the current season in the defense. Florentino Pérez tried to sign him before his departure to Manchester, but finally the Argentinian full back preferred to play in the Premier League instead La Liga.
The Citizens paid an amount of €48M to Valencia and his performance since his signing has been very poor and nowadays he is not in the usual Pep Guardiola’s line-up. The Spanish manager don’t counts with Otamendi and he prefers to play with a left back as Kolarov in the full back instead him. This happened in the second leg against Monaco where we saw the Argentinian on the bench and Kolarov in the defense. For this reason, the Citizens have offered Real Madrid the chance to sign him in the next summer transfer market. Now Florentino must negotiate the amount Los Blancos will pay for his singing, but it is expected to be a smaller amount than the one paid by Manchester City to Valencia
