Bayern leap ahead of English sides in defender chase.
Bayern Munich may now be the leading contenders to sign Atletico Madrid centre-back Diego Godin ahead of the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea, according to Fichajes.net.
The Bavarian giants are the latest side to show a strong interest in the world class Uruguayan, who was essential in Atletico’s title success and run to the Champions League final last season.
Although Bayern are already strong in defence, Pep Guardiola is keen to bring Godin to the Allianz Arena to provide another quality option in the middle of his back four.
This would no doubt be a major blow for United in particular, who have made Godin one of their top targets in defence in recent times.
