£28.5m Chelsea and Manchester United target won't leave in the summer


Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin will not leave the Spanish giants, head coach Diego Simeone has revealed.

The 29-year-old was a target for Chelsea and Manchester United according to reports but the Argentine told Marca that the player is one of the few "untouchables" in his squad.

"Of course, at Atletico there are few players who can be considered untouchable: Koke, Diego Godin and that's about it, I would say," Simeone said.

"I speak to [director] Andrea Berta every day and we have in our minds the players this group needs to grow. Now the work is up to the club.

"Mandzukic? Who goes and who stays is not up to me. The club will decide what is best. We are happy with Mandzukic, he had a very competitive campaign.

"You have asked me about Mandzukic again and I repeat that he held our attack together when Antoine Griezmann started the season badly."
