Atletico Madrid’s Diego Godin ’90 percent’ to Inter

Atletico Madrid defender is ’90 percent’ likely to be joining Inter on a free transfer this summer, according to ESPN FC.

The 33-year-old is still regarded as one of the world’s elite central defenders and also has long-standing interest from Juventus and Manchester United.

Atleti’s policy is not to offer contracts of over one year in length to any player over the age of 30 and the Uruguayan has been free to speak to other clubs since January.

Cadena Ser had previously that the Milanese giants had agreed to sign Godin on a free when his contract expires in June, although the claim was quickly previously refuted by Diario AS.

The Spanish radio station claimed the Uruguayan defender will join the Nerazzurri on a two-year deal with the option of a third, worth an annual wage of €5.5m.

Los Rojiblancos are also currently at their salary budget for wage offerings, meaning a new deal is unlikely to be sanctioned until players depart the first-team squad.

Godin is one of three experienced defenders out of contract at the Wanda Metropolitano this summer, alongside Filipe Luis and Juanfran.
