Manchester United Contact Atletico Madrid Over Transfer For Godin

Manchester United have made an offer to sign Diego Godin, according to Sky Sports.

The news comes just hours after manager Jose Mourinho outlined that the club would be making no additions to the squad on transfer deadline day.

Manchester United executive vice chairman Ed Woodward and head of corporate development Matt Judge are both at the club's Carrington training complex this morning as they try to deliver a late signing for Jose Mourinho.

And BBC Sport journalist Stone has now revealed that the Red Devils were always wary of bidding for the 32-year-old.

With Godin snubbing the Red Devils, Leicester not willing to budge on their stance with regard to Maguire and Alderweireld's move dependent on Spurs being able to bringing in a replacement before the deadline, a new defender arriving at the Old Trafford before the window closes is starting to look highly improbable.

According to Sky Sports, United are chasing a deal for the Uruguay global.

As per reports from the Daily Mail, Atletico Madrid centre-back Diego Godin has turned down a chance to join Premier League giants Manchester United on the English transfer deadline day.

"Behind the scenes, there was a suspicion they were being used as leverage by Godin's representatives to get a new deal from Atletico".

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".

"So I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to this first couple of matches, maybe four matches because after Burnley there is national team and a couple of weeks to recover people and prepare people better, is to focus on players available so I'm not thinking about that list I give you, I focus on what we have".

United have signed three players this transfer window, Diogo Dalot, Fred, and Lee Grant.
