Otamendi bags €40 million move to Manchester City
The Valencia and Argentina defender has been agitating for a move from Mestalla. France international Eliaquim Mangala will go the other way on loan.
Nicolás Otamendi will be officially unveiled as a Manchester City player on Monday. The Valencia defender, who on Sunday did not attend training with his teammates but was at the club's offices, will complete a transfer to the Etihad for 40 million euros, with France international Eliaquim Mangala moving to the Mestalla on loan. Valencia have finally buckled under the defender's repeated demands to be allowed to leave, which reportedly led to him asking manager Nuno to be excused from training.
