Atleti working on Godin renewal

Atletico Madrid are working on renewing the contract of central defender Diego Godin with interest from Juventus and Manchester United, say reports in Spain.

El Mundo Deportivo say the Uruguayan international is being monitored by both European giants, with his current deal expiring next summer and containing a €20m release clause.

There are reports that Medhi Benatia – who has been linked to Arsenal and Olympique Marseille – will leave the Bianconeri this summer, leaving a gap in their squad.

For United, they are hopeful of signing a new central defender with hopes of Tottenham’s Toby Aldweireld reportedly fading.

Godin, 32, will see his contract at the Wanda Metropolitano expires next summer but he is unlikely to have a desire to leave Atleti.
