Atletico Madrid’s Diego Godin ‘rejected’ Man United, Juventus offers

18 August 2018

Diego Godin has confirmed he rejected a lucrative move to Manchester United this summer in order to stay with Atletico Madrid due to personal reasons, according to the Mirror.

Mourinho had also claimed that Diego Godin's agent was using Manchester United to force Atletico Madrid for a new, better deal.

Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin said he is proud to take over as the club's captain after having turned down interest from other clubs.

Ahead of the UEFA season curtain-raiser in Tallinn, Estonia, Godin will replace midfielder Gabi Fernandez, who joined Al-Sadd, as Atletico's captain, with Antoine Griezmann becoming one of the team's vice-captains.

Manchester United desperately searched for a new centre back this summer transfer window, but for various reasons came up empty in the end.

That approach was quickly rebuffed by the Europa League champions, with reports suggesting that the Uruguayan was about to sign a new deal at the Wanda Metropolitano.

"I've not renewed my contract".

When asked about why he didn't join Manchester United, Diego Godin said, " I have had offers, although I have chose to stay for personal reasons and I am only thinking about the final".

However, while the Uruguayan worldwide has confirm he rejected an offer from Old Trafford due to personal reasons, Godin has denied he has signed a new extension with Atletico. We are preparing well, with new teammates who will improve the team and make us stronger. "We are very optimistic".
