It is the game of opportunity and with it, Inter will have one of the best central defenders in the world in Diego Godin next season.
Let’s go back to last summer when the Uruguayan refused Mourinho and Manchester United which were ready to pay €20M to bring him to Old Trafford. Godin took his time but ultimately declined the offer because he was reassured by Atletico Madrid that a new contract was coming.
Autumn came and passed. Winter came and everything was frozen between the player and the Spanish club. Inter immediately took advantage of the situation and made the acquisition: two-year deal at about €5.5M net per season with an option for the third year. In the coming weeks, both sides will continue working on the details but everything seems ready and is practically done for his arrival.
