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

Any hope that Manchester United would sign Diego Godin on transfer deadline day didn't last very long at all. It has now been revealed by the Sky Sports reporter, Gianluca di Marzio, that the Red Devils were ready to pay the Uruguayan's release clause of €25m.

Manchester United are reportedly chasing a deal to sign Diego Godin.

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.

Atletico coach Diego Simeone spoke with Godin at the beginning of preseason to make it clear he wants him to stay.

Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld, Jerome Boateng and Yerry Mina are all on United's radar as the deadline encroaches and Atleti's Godin has now emerged a target for the Premier League giants.

The failure to lure Godin increases the possibility of United seeing out the transfer window with no further additions to their squad despite Jose Mourinho's revelation earlier this summer that he is two players short of reaching the five-man target he set his club's board in the spring.

"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".

The report claims United also offered to double Godin's wages to £8.1m-per-season after tax but unfortunately they have not been given any encouragement that a deal can be done before today's 5pm deadline.

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.
