Diego Forlan, who played for Manchester United for two years, has revealed that he wouldn’t mind playing for the club again.
However, he acknowledged that the Red Devils already boast a number of high-profile talents, namely Zlatan Ibrahimović, Wayne Rooney, Marcus Rashford, and Anthony Martial, but the Uruguayan stated that he could join the club in an emergency situation if all the stars were out injured.
Forlan, 37, forever embedded his name in Old Trafford folklore when he scored a brace against Liverpool at Anfield back in 2002.
He netted two goals in two minutes, as Liverpool’s keeper, Jerzy Dudek, crumbled.
Forlan also joked that if he did join United, he would probably go on to score against Liverpool once more like he did 14 years ago.
“If Zlatan Ibrahimović, Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford all were out of the picture, I would be happy to go on an emergency loan and help out United,” the Uruguayan wrote in The National.
He added: “Maybe play at Liverpool away, score a goal or two and then make way when the injured come back.”
Forlan also revealed that he has received offers from England, Italy and Spain. But Manchester United are the only club that can bring him back to Europe.
“I had offers to play in England this summer and last. The only team I will play for in England is Manchester United.
“I had offers from Spain and Italy, too. But I feel that I have done my time in both countries, sampled the life there and enjoyed myself. Now I am ready for something new.”
Forlan recently completed a move to the Indian Super League, where he hopes to jumpstart the Football industry in India.
“India is definitely that. Cricket is the No 1 sport, especially in Mumbai where I am headed, but the Indian Super League has been a success.”
