However, today the agent of Forlan, Daniel Bolotnikoff, denied the news coming out from Turkey & said that there is no agreement at all. This coincides with news from England via local paper “The Sun” that TOTTENHAM HOTSPURS is also trying to lure the player towards London.
With these stories, I can only deduce that the player is playing with both Clubs at this moment & will go to the best bidder. Tottenham & Diego Forlan has been “flitering” with each other for months, & Turkish Club Besiktas has been tempting the Uruguayan for the last months as well. Diego Forlan was caught by TV cameras asking ex-Coach of Besiktas Bernd Schuster how Turkey & the Club was like last week in a charity get together.
The above also explains the fall-out & dressing room problems that Diego Forlan has had with Atletico Coach Sanchez Flores. Although the latter has not said so explicitly, the Coach has left Forlan on the bench due to a “non-commitment” attitude with his team. Said differently, that player has his head everywhere except at Atletico de Madrid were he has been attempting to “get out” all season. Let’s not forget that Forlan offered himself to Real Madrid during the “Winter Transfer” window.
So stay tuned, I would bet that Diego Forlan will end up signing with the Club that best conditions can offer, although Besiktas has ex-team-mate Simao & Spanish ex-Real Madrid player Guti which may tip the balance in helping to settle in quicker in a new place. But said this, Forlan is familiar with English life …
