AC Milan have agreed a January skipper to Atletico Madrid deal to sign Diego Godin, according to a report.
The Uruguay center-back will apparently sign a two-and-a-half-year deal worth € 4million a year, according to Quotidano Sportiva.
Report appears last week that Jose Mourinho was lining up a £ 20m summer deal for Godin after renewing his interest in the Atletico Madrid man.
Mourinho apparently wanted Godin last summer but ended up getting nowhere as the 32-year-old was set to commit his future to the La Liga giants, although he never penned a new deal in Madrid.
The Daily Mirror claimed that Mourinho was looking to sign Godin on a free transfer next summer, but now it looks as though Milan have stolen a march on United.
The tough-tackling defender is out of contract next summer and will be available for free, but the latest report suggests that Milan is happy to get ahead of the competition for Godin and they will have to pay a transfer fee for the player.
Corriere dello Sport recently AC Milan were set to hit next summer, claiming that Milan's technical director Leonardo had contacted Godin to sound him out of a move to the San Siro.
