La Liga star speaks out on possibility of move.
Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin has spoken about the prospect of leaving Atletico Madrid, admitting that his long-term future is uncertain, according to the Daily Star.
The Uruguayan international has been one of Europe’s most solid centre-backs in recent times, inspiring Diego Simeone’s side to a superb La Liga title win last season, as well as on a surprise run to the Champions League final, where he also scored in the defeat to Real Madrid.
Godin is now thought to be attracting strong interest from both Chelsea and Manchester United, but it seems he is in no hurry to leave Atletico for the moment as he is enjoying the best form of his career at the Vicente Calderon.
Still, the 28-year-old has not ruled out moving in the future, though he has suggested that it would be more likely for him to leave Spain to return to his native Uruguay before the end of his playing career.
Although a move to the Premier League may not be likely for the moment, Godin refused to rule anything out.
“I would like to stay many years here [at Atletico Madrid],” he said.
“But it is true that I also have an attraction from my country and at any point in the future I would like to return to Uruguay, to respond to the love they have showed me during this years.
“But just the time will say. It is difficult to know where I will be playing in as many years.”
