Manchester City make big offer for Atletico defender Diego Godin

Simon Lloyd

At least one side in Manchester is trying to bolster their defensive ranks…

While Louis van Gaal appears content with his injury-prone United back line, Marca report that Diego Godin has been the subject of a €40m bid from Manchester City.

The Uruguayan, outstanding in Atletico’s title-winning side of 2014, has reportedly declined an offer of €6.5m-a-year in favour of staying put in Madrid, where he has been offered a new contract.

If he were to head to Manchester, surely Godin would be an ideal candidate to sure up the City rear guard.
