Manchester United Contact Atletico Madrid Over Transfer For Godin

Godin, who was one of the best defenders at this summer's World Cup as Uruguay reached the quarter finals, could be the answer to Mourinho's prayers.

But Mourinho's hopes were dashed after he was was told the Uruguayan global has agreed a new deal with Atletico Madrid.

Rumours emerged on Thursday morning suggesting Godin was the latest defensive target on United's wanted list, but Atletico were quick to dismiss the prospect of selling their iconic defensive talisman and are believed to be ready to offer the 32-year-old a new contract.

Manchester United have made Diego Godin their latest target as they continue their attempts to sign a central defender before the transfer deadline.

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

"I'm not confident, I'm not confident and the market closes today so it is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed". "I will have to focus on the players I have in relation to this first couple of matches".

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

The Portuguese is desperately seeking reinforcements for his defence on the eve of the campaign with summer-long interest in Toby Alderweireld and Harry Maguire failing to result in moves ahead of deadline day.

The situation all seemed rather complicated until Sky Sports cleared up the situation and it seems Godin's agent used United to bag a pay-rise and new contract.
