Jose Mourinho is hellbent on snapping up a new defender ahead of today's 5 pm transfer deadline.

Manchester United executive vice chairman Ed Woodward and head of corporate development Matt Judge are both at the club's Carrington training complex this morning as they try to deliver a late signing for Jose Mourinho.

Leicester City are said to want a world record fee for Harry Maguire, Tottenham want around £50m for Toby Alderweireld, who has one year left on his deal, and Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng has reportedly said he has no interest in moving to Manchester.

Sky Sports earlier reported that Manchester United have asked Atletico Madrid about the availability of Diego Godin.

Godin, 32, has been one of the world's most consistent defenders over the past five years.

But Mourinho's hopes were dashed after he was was told the Uruguayan global has agreed a new deal with Atletico Madrid.

The 32-year-old has plied his trade in the Spanish capital since 2010 following a switch from Villarreal.

Zarif said in his Wednesday remarks that the world was taking Iran's side in the face of United States acts. The US now plans on adding Iranian oil and gas to the sanctions in November this year.

The Red Devils have found it extremely hard to sign a new center-back this summer as another defender has rejected a move to the Old Trafford.

"So it's time, at least for me, to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed".

Although Godin has a €20 million (£18m/$23.2m) release clause in his current Atletico contract he is happy to stay with Diego Simeone's side beyond the expiry of the existing deal.

As per reports from the Daily Mail, Atletico Madrid centre-back Diego Godin has turned down a chance to join Premier League giants Manchester United on the English transfer deadline day.

'I will have to focus on the players I have in relation to this first couple of matches.

It leaves United going back to the drawing board as they seek a defensive signing today.
