The Uruguayan international has been with Atletico for the past four years and has gone on to establish himself as a solid and dependable performer in their back line, and he has been a key figure in the side’s chase for the La Liga title this term.

Chelsea were linked with Godin last summer, though he eventually signed a new contract with Atletico in November, committing his future to the club until 2018, though this hasn’t put off City pursuing him this year.

Pellegrini is said to be interested in making some high profile additions to his back line as Martin Demichelis has not performed to s good enough standard and skipper Vincent Kompany may be moved on to Barcelona.

Godin would represent a vast improvement for City if they are able to convince Atletico to part with him, though in doing so they will be trying to convince them that they can do without one of their best players.
