AC Milan have expressed an interest in signing Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin.

The Uruguay centre back is out of contract after this season and will be allowed to leave the Wanda Metropolitano on a free transfer.

Manchester United were reported to be in for the 32-year-old last summer when Jose Mourinho was attempting to further bolster his defence.

That deal never came to fruition, however, and, according to Corriere dello Sport, AC Milan are set to pounce next summer.
