Manchester United are reportedly still enraged with Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin, who refused a last-gasp transfer to Old Trafford this summer before signing a new contract at the Wanda Metropolitano.

The Mirror‘s Simon Mullock wrote the Red Devils remain “furious” with Godin, whom he said used the Premier League giants to secure a new deal in Madrid. United thought they had signed the Uruguayan after triggering his £18 million buyout clause.

According to the report, United received encouragement the 32-year-old wanted to sign and organised a private jet to take him from Sardinia to England on Aug. 8, but the flight was cancelled when Atleti offered their star improved terms.
