Manchester United approach snubbed by Atletico Madrid star Diego Godin

Manchester United approach snubbed by Atletico Madrid star Diego Godin

And with another potential target, Yerry Mina, on the verge of finalizing a move to Everton, United made an approach to sign the experienced Godin from Atleti on the deadline day.

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.

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

Jose Mourinho is hellbent on snapping up a new defender ahead of today's 5 pm transfer deadline.

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

Reports have also suggested Godin has a release clause in his Atletico contract worth just £18m.

He said: "I'm not confident, I'm not confident and the market closes today so is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed".

The Uruguay centre-back's agent approached United earlier in the week and told the club Godin was genuinely interested in a move to Old Trafford, according to The Sun.

United were hopeful that they could have persuaded Godin to sign and join his new teammates in time for the Red Devils' Premier League season opener against Leicester on Friday night but they will have to return to the drawing board now. However, the 121-time capped Uruguayan worldwide 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.
