Diego Forlan's agent has denied that his client could be the next top class striker on his way out of Atletico Madrid. Rumors had been spreading that a move to Italian giants Inter Milan was on the cards.
I'm sure Atletico Madrid fans will be dreading the thought of Forlan leaving after already witnessing Sergio Aguero leaving this summer for a massive fee of £38 million.
Atletico Madrid did manage to invest in a player who I think is a suitable replacement for Aguero, but it came at a very hefty cost as Atletico Madrid signed Porto striker Falcao. The Colombian cost the Spanish club just short of £35 million.
Falcao, 25, had a prolific goalscoring from last season and Atletico Madrid will surely hope he can continue where he left off last season.
It was suggested that should Atletico Madrid succeed in buying Falcao that it would be a hint for Forlan that he would be able to leave. But now it seems that Falcao, as expected, is a direct replacement for Aguero and not for both Aguero and Forlan.
Ever since last years World Cup which left many of us half asleep, Forlan has been hot property as he along with many of his Uruguay team mates were the only thing that was entertaining and worth watching.
After a horrid time at Manchetser United he has proven he is a player of immense talent with both Villareal and his current club, Atletico Madrid. Maybe this suggests that Spanish football suits his style of play and should he move it should only be if Real Madrid or Barcelona make an inquiry.
So what do you think? Will Forlan move?
