Man City complete Otamendi deal….

Nicolas Otamendi

Manchester City have completed the signing of Valencia centre-back Nicolas Otamendi. The Argentina international, 27, who will wear the number 30 shirt, is Manchester City’s third signing of the summer after the arrivals of Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph. “I am here to give my best, to fight game by game and push City to the highest peaks for as long as possible, and I wish we will be able to win several cups and titles,” Otamendi said. “That’s the most important. To be here inside a club that looks so wonderful from the outside is a dream.” Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini was unusually glowing in his greeting to his new capture. “Nicolas Otamendi was arguably the best defender in La Liga last season and so naturally I’m delighted to have added a player of his quality,” the Chilean said. “He is an established international for one of the best nations in world football and I have no doubt that he has the right mentality to fit into the squad. Nicolas has all of the qualities to be a success in the Premier League – he’s strong, he’s excellent in the tackle and he’s very good technically.”
