According to reports from The Express this afternoon, Chelsea and Manchester United target Diego Godin is set to sign a new contract at Atletico Madrid.
The Uruguay international has emerged as one of the top centre-backs in world football since joining the Mattress Makers in 2010, featuring prominently at the last two World Cups whilst helping secure Atletico’s first La Liga title in nearly twenty years during the 2013/14 campaign.

The 29 year-old was mooted as a transfer target for Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Manchester United by former Uruguay star Paolo Montero in June, whilst he’s believed to have rejected a contract offer from Manchester City last month after they activated his £28million release clause.
And according to The Express, Godin is set to snub Premier League interest yet again by tying himself down to a long-term contract at Vincente Calderon. It will have a four-year duration and also eradicate his buyout fee.
