Man City defender Nicolas Otamendi wanted by Real Madrid

Manchester City defender Nicolas Otamendi is interesting Real Madrid.

TyC Sports says Real Madrid are thinking about Otamendi as a substitute for Pepe.

The Portuguese's contract with Real Madrid ends in June and will not renew. All signs point towards China after 10 years with los Blancos.

Manuel Pellegrini's Hebei are said to be the most interested could offer him a salary of €15 million reportedly (almost triple what he makes at present).

Due to this, Real are moving to replace the soon-to-be 34-year-old. It is almost a given that Jesus Vallejo will return from his loan spell with Eintracht, and according to the reports from Argentine, Otamendi would soon follow.
