Diego Forlan, the former Manchester United forward, is reportedly in negotiations to move to Anfield this Summer from Atletico Madrid.

According to Sport, the Uruguayan has verbally agreed all details of the switch and is awaiting the two clubs to confirm details.

Forlan currently has a release clause of €36 million, and Atletico are said to be holding out for that figure – but Rafael Benitez is set to offer Lucas in a cash plus player exchange.

Forlan is enjoying an excellent season in La Liga, scoring 25 league goals for Atletico – but he only managed ten goals in 60+ appearances for United.

36 mill for forlaN and Benitez is willing to get him???? IMPOSSIBLE… I think rafa is more intelligent than that… with 30million buy TEVEZ

That depends on whether Tevez is actually available to us.

Comment by lfctalk

yes but even if Tevez isnt available, forlan is by far not the ideal target to replace him… I wud even go rather for Santa Cruz but not forlan! kindly pass the message to rafa please! XD
