PORTO defender Nicolas Otamendi - who has been linked with Chelsea, Manchester United and Mancheser City - is still open to leaving the Portugese club before Friday after seeing a loan move to Valencia collapse. The Argentine international was close to moving to Spain but Porto's demands were too much for financially challenged Valencia. Jose Mourinho is thought to be a fan of the player, while Manchester City were linked with a double swoop for Otamendi and Porto teammate Eliaquim Mangala as Manuel Pellegrini sought to strengthen his rearguard with Joleon Lescott eyeing the exit.
