Godin will be a great signing for the club. He is a great leader, player, and an icon for his club and country. The 32-year-old is looking to take on another path in his career, a move to Italy is possible as he rejected an offer from Manchester United last summer. The two time Europa League winner is ready to leave the club he spent eight years with.

Captain of Atletico Madrid Diego Godin can very possibly join AC Milan next summer.
