It is said that Jose Mourinho is furious with the agent of Diego Godin (Getty Images) The Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, believes that the agent of Diego Godin has used the club to get a better deal with the Atletico Madrid.
The center-Uruguay agent approached United at the start of the week and told the club that Godin was genuinely interested in a transfer to Old Trafford, according to The Sun.
At that time the United States was working hard to get an agreement for Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire, Jerome Boateng or Yerry Mina over the line, with no success.
Defeated by Godin's desire, the Premier League team presented an offer to his agent and waited for news from Atletico's board.
Reportedly, Diego Godin has a release clause of only £ 18 million (Getty Images). But a few hours later Godin signed a new contract on the improved terms that are believed to be 7.5 million euros per year at the Wanda Metropolitano.
This rapid turnaround has infuriated the Portuguese manager who now believes that the agent's agenda is always to get a better deal for his 32-year-old client.
Godin, who has been widely considered one of Europe's best defenders for a number of years, has surprisingly a £ 18 million release clause.
