Should Man United Go Back In For Diego Godin?

It was widely reported that Manchester United wanted Uruguayan defender Diego Godin during the last few days of the summer transfer window, The Guardian even suggested a €25m bid was lodged by the Premier League giants.

Tapping Up Scandal Could See Antoine Griezmann End Up At Man United
