Godin captained Uruguay to this summer's World Cup quarter-finals

A barrage of targets have been mentioned over the course of the summer, as there always is when United are involved, and now a surprise name has risen with the deadline quickly approaching.

It's claimed United have made contact Atletico, with Mourinho determined to bring in one more signing ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

Neither of those deals have transpired. A central defender has been the Portuguese manager's main priority with England and Leicester's Harry Maguire the main man linked.

Tottenham Hotspur's Toby Alderweireld and Barcelona outcast Yerry Mina have also been touted as on the club's radar, but Tottenham's valuation of Alderweireld has stalled negotiations and Mina seems Everton-bound.

He said: "I'm not confident, I'm not confident and the market closes today so is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed".

Whilst that claim is bold, Zouma certainly has bags of potential and in many ways is an ideal Mourinho prototype. According to French sports daily L'Equipe, Everton have sent a loan offer to Chelsea for Zouma.

"I am not confident".

Manchester United have been linked to Diego Godin.

As they cast around for last-minute additions - with the summer's transfer work only yielding Lee Grant, Fred and Diego Dalot so far - United have made a late move for Godin, according to Sky Sports News.

'I will have to focus on the players I have in relation to this first couple of matches.

He would certainly add some real steel to the Old Trafford backline.
