The star Argentine centre back Nicolas Otamendi is under the radar of Atletico Madrid in the next summer transfer window. Atletico Madrid are in real need of defenders in the next season as the star centre back Diego Godin is going to move to Inter Milan after the end of this season.
On the other hand, the move of Lucas Hernandez to Bayern Munich is also a done deal. So, the Madrid outfit need the replacement options for these two star defenders. The young centre back of Porto, Felipe is on his way to Atletico Madrid in the next summer transfer window. However, the club management of Atletico Madrid want someone as experienced as Diego Godin at the central defense. That’s why, they are going for Nicolas Otamendi in this summer transfer window.
Nicolas Otamendi is certainly not the first choice centre back at Manchester City under the management of Pep Guardiola. The star Argentine centre back is also wishing to leave Manchester City to play regular first team football. Atletico Madrid might just be the ideal place for him at this stage of his career. Atletico Madrid will have to compete with Valencia and West Ham United to seal the deal of Nicolas Otamendi in the upcoming summer transfer window.
