SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: CAN THIS BE TRUE - ATLETICO DE MADRID OFFERS REAL MADRID DIEGO FORLAN FOR 18M€?

CAN THIS BE TRUE - ATLETICO DE MADRID OFFERS REAL MADRID DIEGO FORLAN FOR 18M€?

For those who went to pick up the Spanish Sports daily “Marca” this morning they may have been surprised to read,  that according to the paper, ATLETICO DE MADRID has Uruguayan forward DIEGO FORLAN on sale & for the upcoming “Winter Market” next January 2011. That’s not the big surprise, the eye lifter is that the daily says that his Club has offered the player to REAL MADRID! But there is more to make the Atletico fan wonder; the price called for by Atletico is 18M€, that is half the price of his opt-out contract clause. Can we believe this news?


The facts are that the Striker hasn’t scored for months, is undergoing possibly his most serious goal dry spell which is affecting him psychologically & his relationship with Coach Quique Sanchez Flores is very cold. A couple of months back, Diego Forlan irritated Club & fans when he said to English TV that if someone came with an offer he would leave. Words that he latter explained were taken out of context due to translation reasons...mmmmm. 


Apart from the possibility of Real Madrid studying the “offer”, there are two other known Clubs that have shown real interest, they are English Premier League Club TOTTENHAM & Italian Club JUVENTUS.


I will keep an eye out on this story & see if “Marca” are using their usual Marketing “tricks”, that perhaps the players inner – circle is testing the atmosphere or it is all totally false. Stay tuned!
