Manchester United has made a €25 million offer to Atletico Madrid for Diego Godin.
But Godin would prefer to stay with Atleti.
Jose Mourinho is desperate to sign a center back, but the club has been put off by the fees for Bayern Munich’s Jérôme Boateng and Leicester City’s Harry Maguire.
United have offered Godin a contract of €9 million a season.
Gianluca Di Marzio reports Godin has turned down the pursuit from United.
