Forlan ponders England return

Atletico Madrid's former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan would welcome a return to England after resurrecting his career in La Liga.

The 31-year-old, who is currently in South Africa with the rest of the Uruguay World Cup squad, scored 17 times in 97 appearances for the Red Devils, before heading to Spain in the summer of 2004.

He has since emerged as one of the league top goalscorers with first Villarreal and more recently Atletico.

However, Forlan would like another crack in the Premier League, saying:"If there is an offer and it's good for Atletico and good for me, I would be really happy to go back to England.

"If a big chance to return to England came up, I would have to look at it. I loved my time in English football – the people, the fans, the football, everything.

"I wasn't sad the way it ended at United to be honest. I was really happy during my time there and thank the people at United for how they treated me.

"During my period there I learnt a lot of things and had a good relationship with everyone. The reason I left was because I didn't have the chance to play as regularly as I wanted.

"Now I have the chance to play regularly the way I wanted and I am really happy I'm doing that."
