The Red Devils made an enquiry about the defender but were told that the 32-year-old would sign a new contract in the Metropolitan Wanda.

Manchester United has had an approach for the Atletico de Madrid defender Diego Godin rejected, with the Uruguayan ready to sign a new contract with the Spanish club.

United have been linked to a series of defensive central defenders during the summer transfer window, with Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham as its number one target.

Prior to the Thursday afternoon transfer deadline, the Red Devils have made several advances for Harry Maguire, Yerry Mina and Jerome Boateng as backup options if they do not secure the Alderweireld deal on the line.

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

He has spent the last 11 years of his career in Spain, moving from Villarreal to Atlético in 2010, and has won seven important trophies with the Colchoneros, including the 2014 La Liga title. He also accumulated 122 matches with Uruguay and is the current captain of the National team.

The failure to attract Godin increases the likelihood that United will see the transfer window without further additions to its squad despite Jose Mourinho’s revelation earlier this summer that two players are left to reach the goal of five which he submitted to the club’s board during in January.

Moussa Dembele

Manchester United are not just in the 12th position on the Premier League standings, they are also 18 goals behind their neighbors Manchester City who have scored 27 goals this season.

Nine goals from eight matches are unacceptable for United’s standard and Solskjaer is doing something to change the situation at Old Trafford.

The Norwegian boss is linked with some top strikers in the world including Mario Mandzukic, Zlatan Ibramovich, and Ligue 1 star Moussa Dembele.

It was reported by the Mirror that the Premier League outfit are close to reaching a deal with Juventus for Croatia’s 33-year-old Mandzukic. But how are they faring in their mission to lure Lyon’s in-form striker Dembele to Old Trafford in January?

It is believed that Lyon are asking too much for the player’s services as they could place a huge £71m price tag on the France U21 international.

According to the report, United won’t give in to the asking price, but negotiations are still ongoing between both clubs.

As for Ibramovich, nothing concrete is coming out of Old Trafford as Solskjaer isn’t ready to re-sign the Sweden international who was with the Red Devils during Mourinho’s regime.
