Manchester United have reportedly approached Spanish side Atletico Madrid over the possible signing of Uruguayan defender Diego Godin.
Sky Sports are reporting that United are looking to sign Godin after being linked with moves for Jerome Boateng, Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld.
The news comes just hours after manager Jose Mourinho outlined that the club would be making no additions to the squad on transfer deadline day.

“The information I have is no,” said Mourinho when asked if he expected any signings or departures from Old Trafford on deadline day.
“I’m not confident, I’m not confident and the market closes today so it is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed.”
It’s clear that United have been looking at adding a top quality centre-back and Godin has been one of the finest in Europe over the last number of seasons.
There is no word yet as to whether or not the Manchester club have made an official bid for the defender.
