Valencia have warned United they will have to pay at least £35m to sign Nicolas Otamendi,ESPN report.

The Argentine’s agent said yesterday that his client would do whatever it takes to force through a summer move.

But Valencia president Amadeo Salvo insists the centre-back will not be leaving on the cheap.

Louis van Gaal is looking for a replacement for Radamel Falcao, who has returned to Monaco after a disappointing loan spell.
