Diego Godin REJECTS chance to make late move to Manchester United

But United appear to still be trying to bring in a top defender with attention suddenly turning to Godin. That much we do know.

United then tried to peruse, Bayern's Jerome Boateng, Barca's Yerry Mina, and Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld but could not finalize the move with any one of them.

Atletico Madrid have rejected an approach from Manchester United for Diego Godin.

Mourinho is said to be keen to add an experienced centre-half to his ranks in time for the new season.

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. What doesn't make much sense, however, is that United are only seemingly moving for the player with hours remaining of the transfer window.

Though we've covered almost every thing that was announced today, it's also worth watching the Direct to see it all in action. Rool are coming as brand new fighters , while Richter Belmont , Chrom , and Dark Samus are joining as Echo Fighters .

He has spent the last 11 years of his career in Spain, switching from Villarreal to Atletico in 2010, and has won seven major trophies with the Colchoneros including the 2014 La Liga title. He has 122 worldwide caps and has scored 8 times for Uruguay.

"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've been told in the past few minutes Godin's agent was actually the one who approached United this week, saying the player was keen to come to Old Trafford and a deal could be done".

Although Godin has a €20 million (£18m/$23.2m) release clause in his current Atletico contract he is happy to stay with Diego Simeone's side beyond the expiry of the existing deal.
