In their search for a center-back, Manchester United have reached Madrid and have reportedly asked about the availability of Atletico Madrid captain, Diego Godin.

Godin is considered one of the finest defenders on the planet.

However, The Sun say Mourinho now feels Godin used the Red Devils to broker a new Atletico contract instead.

Any hope that Manchester United would sign Diego Godin on transfer deadline day didn't last very long at all.

Godin has been at Madrid since 2010 and has made 350 appearances for the club.

However, although no there has been official confirmation of a new contract, United were told that Godin has agreed a new contract - and would remain at the Wanda Metropolitano with Diego Simeone's side for at least one more campaign.

Meanwhile, one-time United target Mina appears to be on his way to the Premier League on deadline day, with Everton close to finalising a deal to sign the Colombian centre-back.

The report claims United also offered to double Godin's wages to £8.1m-per-season after tax but unfortunately they have not been given any encouragement that a deal can be done before today's 5pm deadline.

Sky Sports News understands the United boss had two bids for England defender Harry Maguire rejected by Leicester City, while Jerome Boateng - Mourinho's preferred option - looks set to remain with Bayern Munich after training with the German champions on Thursday morning.

As a result, United could snap him up in time.
