Premier League giants Manchester United have been dealt a huge transfer blow following the news that defensive target Diego Godin has agreed on a free transfer move to Italian Serie A side Inter Milan.
Various media reports in Italy claim that Atletico Madrid skipper Diego Godin has agreed to a two-year contract with the Nerazzurri to join the Italians on a free transfer in the summer.
The Daily Mirror revealed that the Uruguayan international centre back failed to agree a new contract with Atletico Madrid with less than six months remaining on his contract at the club and that development allowed Inter Milan to swoop in on a free transfer.
Diego Godin came close to signing for three-time European champions Manchester United last summer after the Red Devils were said to have activated his release clause only for him to turn down the transfer to the Premier League.
This was shortly after he featured and led the Uruguayan national team to the quarterfinals at this summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia before they were eliminated by eventual champions France via a 2-0 defeat.
Manchester United will have to look elsewhere for defensive reinforcements following the news of a potential free transfer move for one of their targets.
