United switch targets after Hummels rejection.

With the Borussia Dortmund centre-back, Mats Hummels deciding that a move to Old Trafford was not for him and coming up with the lamest of excuses, namely that United didn`t appear to show any interest early enough, Louis van Gaal will, no doubt be looking at other defensive targets.

One name that is starting to feature prominently in the press is that of Nicolas Otamendi a 27-year-old who is currently on the books of the Spanish outfit Valencia.

United`s chances of landing the player appear to have significantly improved with Otamendi stating a desire to leave the La Liga club.

Otamendi is an Argentinian who, during his career, has played for VĂ©lez Sarsfield and Porto as well as Valencia and has, during his career, picked up eight major titles, including the 2011 Europa League.

Is he the man to shore up our defence?
