The 29-year-old centre-back still had three years to run on the contract he signed in 2015, but has been rewarded for a fine season so far

Nicolas Otamendi has signed a two-year contract extension with Manchester City, Goal can reveal.

The 29-year-old has become an important part of Pep Guardiola’s side this season and he has been rewarded for his fine performances in recent months. He has started all but two of City's games across the Premier League and Champions League, scoring five goals in his 23 appearances.

He is the latest star whose deal City have moved to renew ahead of next summer's World Cup in a bid to ward off interest from Europe’s top clubs.

Goal reported earlier this week that Fernandinho, whose contract was due to expire in the summer, has already put pen to paper on a one year extension, with the option for a further year.

Gabriel Jesus has also agreed a new deal until 2023 and will sign it in the coming weeks, while Kevin De Bruyne will sign his new agreement once City and his agent agree upon the valuation of his image rights.

Otamendi, like Fernandinho, has already signed his contract.

The Argentina centre-back signed a five-year deal when he signed for City in 2015, and has now extended his stay until 2022.
