Interviewed by AS, Cagliari and Uruguayan NT prominent centre-back Diego Godín (35) stated: "Back in summer 2015, I got very close to join Manchester City. They would have even paid an higher fee than the exit clause set upon me back then. While I was in talks with Atletico, negotiating my departure terms, boss Simeone, who was in Japan at that time, called the club and told he would have left too, if I did. Few days away, I was already in renewal talks with the club".
