Manchester United offer ‘rejected by Atletico Madrid’s Diego Godin’

As the clock ticks down towards the transfer deadline and Manchester United’s search for a central defender goes down to the wire, another name has been hurled into the frame — but it’s another deal that seems unlikely.

Sources claimed United were “chasing a deal for Atletico Madrid’s Uruguay international Diego Godin” and had made contact with the club, but Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Godin turned down a United offer.

He says United matched the player’s €25 million release clause and offered him a €9 million-a-season deal, but he rejected the approach and “seems determined to stay in Madrid with Diego Simeone’s side.”

Kurt Zouma has also been linked, with the Sun reporting that a “desperate” Jose Mourinho may raid his former club Chelsea — or, more precisely, their reserve team — to bolster his back line. However, United sources have told ESPN FC that United do not intend to attempt a permanent move for Zouma, while Leicester are adamant that they will not sell Harry Maguire.
