Man Utd want to sing Atletico defender

Mourinho targets Galatasaray winger

Manchester United are weighing up a January move for Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin, according to The Sun.

Jose Mourinho is in need of defensive reinforcements after a host of in different defensive display, while Eric Bailly’s long-term injury means the Portuguese is short of numbers.

Sky Sports’ Spanish football expert Guillem Balague understands United are interested in Godin’s Atleti team-mate Jose Gimenez, but his £57.8m buy-out clause could put them off.

As a result, The Sun claim Mourinho could turn his attention to bringing Uruguay international Godin to Old Trafford instead.
