Manchester United Contact Atletico Madrid Over Transfer For Godin

Manchester United made an eleventh hour effort to sign Uruguayan global Diego Godin, but their advances have been rebuffed by the defender.

Manchester United's pursuit of Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin has been emphatically ended before it even began on transfer deadline day.

United manager Jose Mourinho spoke earlier in the day to say he was not confident about his chances of signing a player today, however, Sky have revealed that United are in for the Atletico Madrid defender.

Solhekol added that the 32-year-old himself didn't want the move because he's about to sign a new deal at the Wanda Metropolitano after United triggered his £18m release clause and offered him £150,000-a-week wages. However, Godin has made a decision to snub the offer in favour of a stay at the Wanda Metropolitano. Godin also had a splendid 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, earlier this summer, where he played a crucial role in Uruguay's run to the quarterfinals. It is understood that the defender is likely to sign a new contract with Los Rojiblancos instead. He has 122 worldwide caps and has scored 8 times for Uruguay. What doesn't make much sense, however, is that United are only seemingly moving for the player with hours remaining of the transfer window.

Having been linked with moves for Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld, Jerome Boateng and Yerry Mina this summer, United suddenly began showing an interest in Chelsea's Kurt Zouma late on Wednesday night.
