Why Manchester United Fans Should Be Cautious About Diego Godin Rumour

Diego Godin is the latest name linked with a move to Manchester United, according to reports.

That’s bound to get supporters very excited – as the Atletico Madrid man is arguably the best central defender in world football and has shown that with club and country over recent years.

It’s no secret that United are in the market for a centre back as the transfer window gets set to close at 5pm today.

Jose Mourinho has shared his frustration at a lack of signings this summer and told earlier how he expected United to do no business between now and the earlier window closing.

But Godin’s name emerging as a target suggests United are still looking to do business.

However, how much should we read into the Godin to Old Trafford rumours? Based on the last week – not too much.

Leicester and England centre back Harry Maguire has been the one linked most with a move to United, becoming a man in demand after starring at the World Cup.

A world record transfer fee for a defender had been mentioned for Maguire, but so far nothing has materialised with that deal.

So with that seeming less likely, Bayern and Germany’s Jerome Boateng emerged as a target, according to and other publications.

Then we got the update yesterday that he’d told United he wasn’t interested in signing.

Now we’ve got Godin, according to – and it smacks of either desperation on United’s part or desperation on the media’s part to link any quality centre back to the Manchester club.

So maybe there should be some caution around the Godin rumour given the players who have already been linked and how late in the day it is before the window closes.

United fans – do you believe Godin is a realistic target?
