Nicolás Hernán Otamendi was born in 1988 in the city of Buenos Aires. The centre back signed his first contract back in 2008 at CA Velez Sarsfield. He played three seasons for them, and not without any success: he was chosen for the 'South American Team of the Year' in 2010. In the same year he made his debut for 'La Albiceleste' and went to the World Cup of 2010 in South Africa. He was the only player in the national team who still played in the Argentinian league. He made his debut for Argentina at the World Cup, in the 2-0 victory over Greece. He played 90 minutes. After the World Cup, as it goes frequently, his star war rising. Everybody knew he would move, the only question was where! FC Porto was the lucky one to sign him for a fee of 4 Million Euro (3.5 Million Pound). In Portugal he won the national title for three years in a row, and even the UEFA Europa League during the season 2010-2011. He decided he was ready for a next step and went to Valencia in 2014. The Spanish club bought him for 12 Million Euro (10.5 Million Pound). In Spain he played well, very well – his immense potential became visible to the coach of The Citizens, Pep Guardiola. So.. his adventure in Spain only lasted one season. In 2015 he moved to Manchester City, who paid a fee of 45 Million Euro (40 Million Pound) to sign him.
