Diego Godin's Agent Played Man United Brilliantly

Diego Godin's Agent Played Man United Brilliantly

Manchester United were left short-changed this transfer window. In hot pursuit of a centre-back, they came away with nothing.

Now the supporters are outraged. They want nothing more than for Man United to compete next season and maybe even make a challenge for the Premier League, but that looks highly unlikely right now. Where other clubs have strengthened a great deal, Man United have barely added to their squad.

And here's why. His agent did something very clever. He contacted Man United, asked if they were interested - an approach was made by the Red Devils, before Atleitco Madrid offered the 32-year-old a glowing new deal. What a move.

The reaction went down a storm but Man United were not too pleased.
