But Mourinho's hopes were dashed after he was was told the Uruguayan global has agreed a new deal with Atletico Madrid.

Godin, the captain of the Uruguay national side, is widely considered to be one of the best defenders in the world, and at 32, has plenty of experience.

Sky Sports News reports that, despite Jose Mourinho's claims on Thursday morning that no further deals are close to being completed, United could yet bring in Godin from Atletico.

Manchester United have made a last-minute approach to sign Atletico Madrid defender, Diego Godin.

There is no word yet as to whether or not the Manchester club have made an official bid for the defender.

The Uruguay centre-back's agent approached United earlier in the week and told the club Godin was genuinely interested in a move to Old Trafford, according to The Sun. It is time for me to stop thinking about the market.

Obviously Godin would be a superb short-term addition if United were able to pull it off but it's looking highly unlikely unless things take a drastic change over the next couple of hours.

Leicester City are said to want a world record fee for Harry Maguire, Tottenham want around £50m for Toby Alderweireld, who has one year left on his deal, and Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng has reportedly said he has no interest in moving to Manchester. However, the 121-time capped Uruguayan global feels settled in the Spanish capital and enjoys an excellent relationship with his current boss Simeone, which has led to him rejecting the English giants' overtures.
