Forlan welcomes Juventus link

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan says he could leave the club should the right offer come in, although he insists he is also happy to stay.

Uruguay international Forlan arrived at Vicente Calderon from Villarreal for around €21million in 2007 and has been a star player for Atletico.

But with Juve now ready to pounce, he reveals that there is the possibility he could make a winter exit.

"I've said many times and I've no problems in repeating it. I feel good here and I have no problems in staying," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"But I'm a professional. Should an interesting offer arrive for me and for the club, we will evaluate it and if we believe it satisfies both sides, I'll change team.

"At Villarreal I was feeling really good, then a good offer arrived for everyone and I came to Atletico Madrid.

"Now the situation is the same. Having said this, it must be stressed that for the moment there hasn't been anything concrete.


"There have been no concrete offers from Italian sides."

The Turin-based Serie A outfit are looking to strengthen their squad this January in a bid to gun down league leaders AC Milan in the second half of the campaign.
