Manchester United are ready to splash out on Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin.
The Sun says United will bid £30million for Diego Godin to give Jose Mourinho the leader he craves.
And Old Trafford powerbrokers will allow Mourinho to ditch up to EIGHT of his squad before the start of next season.
United want Atletico Madrid centre-half Godin, 30, in the January window and will meet the fee and top his current £70,000-a-week wages by a distance.
Mourinho has told his money men that he needs Godin to sort out his defence after identifying the problems caused by makeshift choices Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo.
