Manchester United plot last ditch move for Atletico Madrid's Diego Godin

With this in mind, a move for the 32-year-old Uruguayan global would make sense.

A leader and a champion defender, Godin has a huge admirer in Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

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

Godin emerged as a late candidate to solve United's central defender crisis and his release clause at Atletico Madrid made the move look relatively realistic.

Leicester City are said to want a world record fee for Harry Maguire, Tottenham want around £50m for Toby Alderweireld, who has one year left on his deal, and Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng has reportedly said he has no interest in moving to Manchester.

The Red Devils have found it extremely hard to sign a new center-back this summer as another defender has rejected a move to the Old Trafford.

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

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

However, although no there has been official confirmation of a new contract, United were told that Godin has agreed a new contract - and would remain at the Wanda Metropolitano with Diego Simeone's side for at least one more campaign.

Signing Godin at this late stage would be incredible business by United, but it is also highly hard.

United have signed three players this summer, with Diogo Dalot, Fred and Lee Grant being added to the squad.

"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".
