Diego Godin rejects United as Mourinho issues grim update

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. Mourinho is desperate for the signing of a new defender but has failed to find one so far.

Now that the Godin deal has fallen through, it looks like United won't be signing any new central defenders before this evening's 5pm deadline - a position Jose Mourinho has seen as a priority to strengthen.

The 32-year-old is a crucial cog in Diego Simeone's Atleti team and showed his class with a superb campaign at the World Cup with Uruguay, as they reached the quarter-finals.

In his press conference ahead of Friday's season opener against Leicester City, the Portuguese did not sound optimistic about his club's chances of signing anyone before the transfer window slams shut.

The Red Devils are understood to have already missed out on a number of targets, including Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire, Jerome Boateng and Yerry Mina.

Leicester announced on Sunday evening that they have struck a deal to sign winger Rachid Ghezzal from Monaco on a four-year deal. Courtois was due in for training yesterday afternoon but went AWOL instead - despite Sarri wanting to quiz him about his future.

A host of defenders have been linked with a summer move to Old Trafford.

"On Diego Godin, his agent engaged in interesting tactics".

But Mourinho's hopes were dashed after he was was told the Uruguayan global has agreed a new deal with Atletico.

With so much business being done since the end of last season, it has been tough to keep track of who has gone where.
