Red Devils eye world class La Liga star.
Manchester United are lining up a January bid for a new centre-back and look to have made Atletico Madrid’s Diego Godin their top target, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The Red Devils are ready to pay the Uruguayan’s £28.5m release clause and ditch their interest in Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels in the process.
Louis van Gaal has other defensive targets in mind as well if a move for Godin fails, but the rock-solid South American is thought to be the club’s priority this winter.
Godin has previously attracted strong interest from the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich after his fine form for Atletico last season.
