Mourinho ‘make phone call’ as £45 million rated star on way to Chelsea

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly called Nicolas Otamendi’s representative in an attempt to hijack his transfer to Manchester United, according to the Metro website.

The defender is rated very highly across Europe and there has been much talk of a switch away, as he seeks a step up in the game.

Otamendi is understood to be on the cusp of a switch to Old Trafford, but Mourinho is keen to make a last-ditch effort to sign the Argentine as he searches for a long-time replacement for John Terry.

And reports claim Mourinho rang his agent Jorge Mendes and asked him to get the Valencia centre-back to Stamford Bridge.
