Manchester United have reportedly made a last-ditch approach to sign Atletico Madrid stalwart Diego Godin.

Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng was also mooted with an Old Trafford switch but Mourinho has been left frustrated at a summer that has only seen one high profile addition in £52m Brazilian midfielder Fred.

Godin has spent the majority of his career in Spain, joining Villarreal in 2007 before moving to Atletico Madrid three years later and becoming an integral player, winning six trophies including the La Liga title in 2015 and two Europa Leagues.

Everton on the verge of signing Bernard
He has been capped 14 times by Brazil and was offered to Chelsea , Inter Milan, AC Milan and West Ham United in recent weeks. Bernard could move outside the transfer window system though due to his status as a free agent.

Let's be honest, a deal for the Uruguayan 32-year-old worldwide is very unlikely at this late stage in the transfer window but anything can happen on deadline day - supposedly.

Godin to United? Watch this space.

The Portuguese is desperately seeking reinforcements for his defence on the eve of the campaign with summer-long interest in Toby Alderweireld and Harry Maguire failing to result in moves ahead of deadline day.

The Blues have also been linked with Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic ahead of what is set be a busy last couple of days before the summer window closes.

When asked about potential transfers at Thursday morning's press conference, Mourinho said he was "not confident" of bringing anyone in before the 5pm deadline.

"I'm not confident, I'm not confident and the market closes today so it is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed".

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