Man United reportedly had jet ready for Diego Godin on transfer deadline day

Manchester United reportedly made a deadline day move for Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin

Manchester United were forced to cancel a private jet meant for Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin, according to the Mirror.

The Red Devils reportedly triggered Godin’s £18 million release clause on transfer deadline day, and had consequently arranged transportation for the Uruguayan defender.

However, Atletico offered Godin a new contract to keep their captain at the club, scuppering United’s advances.

Godin was one of a host of centre-backs United were linked with as manager Jose Mourinho looked to strengthen his defence, though they ultimately ended up signing none of their targets.
