AS: Godin refused offer from Juve
- Diego Godin was linked with a move to a number of clubs this summer
- He reportedly turned down the offers from Juventus, Manchester United and Manchester City
According to Spanish outlet AS, the much-desired centre-back is eager to stay at Atletico Madrid, as he has declined Juve offer, as well as the offers from both Manchester teams.
The Spanish side is also keen to save the experienced defender in the squad, as his skill is only going up, which he proved, having performed impressively at the World Cup.

It was reported previously of the €25 million release clause in Godin’s Atletico Madrid contract, but that wasn't a problem as the 32-year-old wouldn't accept any offer. The Uruguayan seeks to tie himself with a new contract at Atletico and looks forward to replacing Gabi as team's captain.
The 32-year-old joined Atletico Madrid for €8 million in 2010 from Villarreal and has gone on to play in around 350 total games for the La Liga club so far. At the point, Godin is considered to be one of the best centre-backs in the world, which sparks a lot of rumours concerning his possible move every transfer window.
