Former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan says he’s happy at Atletico Madrid, but the star has left the door open to a possible move abroad.

"I have a contract with Atletico and I am happy to be at the club," Forlan told AS.

"I have a two-year contract and I cannot say what will happen.


"My plan is be here and try to fulfil the contract, but it's hard to say."

Forlan made 63 appearances for Manchester United and scored 10 goals, before moving from United to Villarreal and then onwards to Atletico.

The 32-year-old has been connected with moves to Tottenham and Inter Milan, but Forlan insists that there have been no firm offers for his services this summer.

He added: "For now there is nothing concrete.

"No one will doubt that Inter are one of the biggest clubs in Europe and the world, but I have a two-year contract and I cannot think of anything else.

"If I have to go, I will continue with the same enthusiasm as always. And if I have to go, I will be happy I did all I could with this team.

And the former United striker insists that despite the transfer speculation surrounding him, he has set goals to achieve with the Spanish side.

"I have the same feeling I have had since I arrived. I do what I like to do, score goals and take the club as high as possible,” he said.
