Transfer deadline day: Manchester United 'launch shock Diego Godin bid'

Diego Godin

Jose Mourinho is desperate to land a central defender before the window closes on Thursday and had hoped that the 32-year-old Godin, who was named in the 2018 World Cup dream team after leading Uruguay to the quarter-finals, could be the answer to his problems.

However, The Sun say Mourinho now feels Godin used the Red Devils to broker a new Atletico contract instead.

Godin is rightly regarded as one of the best centre-backs in world football right now and despite his age, would have been a massive coup for Mourinho's side going forward.

Any hope that Manchester United would sign Diego Godin on transfer deadline day didn't last very long at all.

Reports broke this morning that Man United had approached Atletico regarding their captain's availability but now it's emerged that they have since been shut down by the Europa League champions. It is time for me to stop thinking about the market.

Manchester United have been linked to Diego Godin.

This, after they failed in their pursuits of Yerry Mina, Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld.

Whether United get a deal over the line for Godin, though, remains to be seen.

The newspaper also claimed United have contacted Atletico, with Mourinho determined to bring in one more signing.

With this in mind, a move for the 32-year-old Uruguayan global would make sense. However, the 121-time capped Uruguayan global feels settled in the Spanish capital and enjoys an excellent relationship with his current boss Simeone, which has led to him rejecting the English giants' overtures.
