Mundo Deportivo’s Javi Gómara — who broke the Luis Suárez switch story in 2020 — reported Wednesday that Cagliari heart-again Diego Godín will terminate his contract with the relegation candidates as he’s eyeing an unimaginable reunion with Atlético Madrid.
José Ignacio Fernández, who wrote a e-book in regards to the Atlético icon, has additionally mentioned Godín would love to return to Madrid. The participant acknowledges a transfer might be tough to pull off, however Diego Simeone could be open to bringing him again.
Godín made 389 appearances for Atlético between 2010 and 2019, scoring the objective that delivered Atleti’s first league title in 18 years and occurring to captain the membership in his remaining season — departing as, arguably, its biggest-ever defender. He signed for Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan on a free switch in 2019 and scored within the following season’s Europa League remaining loss to Sevilla earlier than transferring to Cagliari on a 3-12 months pact.
In accordance to Gómara, Godín and his present membership have now reached an settlement to rip up his contract so he can pursue a brand new alternative as a free agent on Jan. 1. Cagliari are rock-backside of Serie A with one win from 12 video games, and Godín — who turns 36 in February — needs yet one more go on the high degree.
And guess the place he needs to be? On the Wanda Metropolitano, enjoying for Simeone and with Uruguay teammates Suárez and José Giménez as soon as once more.
It’s no secret the reigning Spanish champions are struggling defensively, and they are going to be looking for reinforcements both this winter or subsequent summer time. Ought to conversations about his return ramp up, Godín’s low price (wage will reportedly not be a difficulty) and familiarity with the membership might be promoting factors. Nonetheless, his age and declining performances for membership and nation may very well be thought of drawbacks to pursuing a deal.
Regardless, although, it might be actually gorgeous to see El Faraón put on crimson and white once more. My intestine tells me if Cholo pushes for it, the membership will discover a manner to make it occur.
