The 32 year old Uruguayan International DIEGO FORLAN has said officially goodbye to SPANISH FOOTBALL & to all the ATLETICO DE MADRID fans in a Press Conference this afternoon. The player is on the verge of shutting the final details with Italian Club INTER MILAN. As an Atletico de Madrid fan & follower I can only give publicly my sincere thanks to Forlan for the services given to the Club during his stay:
  • 96 goals in 198 official games
  • European Golden boot 2009 - 2010 with 32 goals
  • Europa League Champion 2010 
  • European Super Cup 2010
Thank Diego, wish you all the luck in the World at Inter Milan.

Spanish Football
Diego Forlan 

However, once again the Atletico de Madrid Club Directives & their negotiating skills continue to baffle - at least me. The player was sold to INTER MILAN for only 5M€ - yes, there is no typing error - & the Club will give that money directly to Diego Forlan because the Club owns Forlan 5M€ in salary payments. Therefore, Inter gets Diego Forlan for ZERO cost, & Atletico just watches as a valuable asset flys away. I have my own personal reasons that may make sense of this non - business action, but have no proof, thus will not comment, but you have to say after witnessing the outrageous 40M€ (+7M€) Falcao operation & now witnessing the Forlan transfer that Atletico - the Club - is a busniess "anomaly".

The man about to substitute Forlan is young Portuguese 21 year winger/forward PIZZI from SPORTING DE BRAGA. Here too are "unexplained" transfer - signing questions, but if he can score goals why dig in the dirt.
