Our reports from capital city of Spain said that Atl. Madrid is on clinch to sign Villarreals’s defender, Diego Godin, and the price will be €18m. The deal could be reached within this week. Our reports said that player is ready to go.
The problem between clubs could be Atletico’s offer, because they are able to pay half now, and half next season. Atl. Madrid is trying to rebuild team after successful last season, winning Europa cup. They are preparing for Champions league now.
