And Goal can confirm that they enquired about the availability of 32-year-old Godin in the days leading up to the deadline only to be told that the defender is set to agree a new deal at the Wanda Metropolitano and will not be leaving.

Sources close to the negotiations confirmed on Thursday that officials from United contacted Atletico this week to discuss a deal for Godin, who was entering the final year of his contract.

The news comes just hours after manager Jose Mourinho outlined that the club would be making no additions to the squad on transfer deadline day.

And with another potential target, Yerry Mina, on the verge of finalizing a move to Everton, United made an approach to sign the experienced Godin from Atleti on the deadline day.

Manchester United have reportedly approached Spanish side Atletico Madrid over the possible signing of Uruguayan defender Diego Godin.

Manchester United have had a frustrating transfer window so far, having been unable to secure a number of priority targets.

And BBC Sport journalist Stone has now revealed that the Red Devils were always wary of bidding for the 32-year-old.

With hospitals and clinics also affected, numerous injured have had to be treated in the open air or in makeshift clinics. A green and yellow dome rested on the pile of rubble, the only part of the structure still intact.

Atletico coach Diego Simeone spoke with Godin at the beginning of preseason to make it clear he wants him to stay.

However, like the rest of their defensive targets, the Uruguay global has proven to be out of reach.

Godin to United? Watch this space.

"The information I have is no", he said.

'I will have to focus on the players I have in relation to this first couple of matches.

In his press conference ahead of Friday's season opener against Leicester City, the Portuguese did not sound optimistic about his club's chances of signing anyone before the transfer window slams shut.
