There are still details to be sorted but starting July, Diego Godin will be an Inter player. The defender is going to be out of contract this summer with Atletico Madrid and despite the Spanish club wants to keep him, their offer does not seem to fully satisfy the Uruguayan.
“Godin wants to stay at Atletico, he is happy in Madrid: he is the captain of the team and is loved by all. But he also knows that this will be the last big contract of his career and he expects Atletico to put in a strong effort. Simeone, who has full power on the sporting side of thing, has imposed the policy that after 30 years old, renewals will only happen on the year to year basis, just like what happened to Torres and Gabi.”
And this is why Godin, according to AS, prefers Inter offer.
“Atletico offer him a one-year deal, with the option to extend it further just by making a few appearances, something that the Uruguayan would achieve without problems. But Godin does not want any risks and prefers a fixed two-year deal.”
