Apuntad este nombre para el BETIS de la temporada que viene: NICOLÁS OTAMENDI. Si Demichelis viene con Pellegrini, el central será una de las opciones firmes para reforzar la desastrosa defensa verdiblanca. La relación Demichelis-Nico es estrecha.

32-year-old Otamendi could leave City after five years at the club as part of a defensive overhaul.
And Betis head coach Manuel Pellegrini, who worked with Otamendi in Manchester, has identified him as a ‘firm target’.
Much could depend on whether Martin Demichelis arrives as Pellegrini’s assistant, since he has a close friendship with Otamendi.
But the chance to become Pellegrini’s second-in-command at Betis could appeal to him.
Betis have had problems at the back this season, with their defensive stalwart Marc Barta having a year to forget.
