Manchester City are on the verge of whisking away Atletico Madrid’s star Diego Godin who has been a subject of Chelsea’s transfer.
This is according to reports coming from England that Manchester city are looking forward to bolster their defense that has been calamitous during their pre-season games and are ready to match the player’s buy-out clause of £28m.
The EPL champions are keen on improving their aging defense and are looking to the 29-year-old centre back who has been impressive for the past three years. This is against the back-drop of turned down offers for John Stones who has caught the eyes of Jose Mourinho with performances.
According to the daily Mail, the Blue side of Manchester are now in pole position to land the Uruguay international after the commencement of discussion of the player who has earned 92caps for his country.
Manchester City who have an enviable array of defenders as are not only looking to beat Chelsea to the title this term, but in the transfer market also. With the acquisition of Raheem sterling for £49m from Liverpool , they can pull this deal that is less valued.
