Defender Diego Godin will extend his contract at Atletico Madrid despite the fact that Manchester City showed strong interest in signing him earlier this summer

According to AS, City have been very keen on recruiting the Uruguay centre back and were willing to meet his €40m release clause fee. Godin himself was aware of this interest and informed his current club.
At first, senior Atleti officials were not overly keen on improving his contract in order to keep hold of him, but the possibility of the talismanic defender departing started to concern the coaching staff and the rest of the squad.
As such, Godin held a crunch meeting with president Enrique Cerezo and coach Diego Simeone on Wednesday and he will now continue at Atletico, who will extend his deal.
