The Red Devils were reportedly prepared to meet the Uruguayan’s release clause and offer him lucrative terms, but the 32-year-old has elected to stay put with Atleti.

United’s pursuit of a new centre-back this summer has been no secret, with Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire, Jerome Boateng and Yerry Mina all having been linked with moves to Old Trafford during this transfer window.
