thumbnail Hello,

The Uruguayan forward has rejected suggestions he is locked in talks with the Serie A giants, while insisting he has not grown unhappy at the Vicente Calderon

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan has ensured he has not received any proposal from Inter.

Speculation has been rife in Spain that Forlan is on his way out of Atletico after the €40 million signing of Radamel Falcao from Porto last week.

Such stories were fuelled at the weekend by Forlan's father, who stated that his son would leave the Vicente Calderon and went as far as to say that the striker's agent was in Milan conducting negotiations with Inter.

But Forlan junior says he has no knowledge of that situation and stated he is not desperate to leave Atletico.

"I do not have any offer from Inter," the striker told AS. "I have two years on my contract and I cannot say what is going to happen. My idea is to be here and see out my contract, but it is hard to say if that is going to happen.

"No-one has told me I am for sale, and I bear no rancour towards anyone. If I stay, I will continue with the same expectations, and if I leave, I will do so happy with all I achieved with this team.

"These are all rumours, I have not been told by Atletico that I am to leave."

The Uruguay international has been suggested as a likely replacement for Inter's Samuel Eto'o, who is believed to be on the verge of joining Anzhi Makhachkala in a deal worth €30 million.

Meanwhile, according to a report in news agency Ansa, Forlan's agent, Daniel Bolotnikov, was spotted having lunch with Claudio Vigorelli, who represents Eto'o, in Milan, sparking suggestions the Copa America winner may soon move to the Serie A side.

Forlan's father's had claimed a move to Inter was likely, but questioned on those comments, the 32-year-old stated: "I have not spoken with my father. I read what was published but I would have to listen to what he said. I know him well, and I do not know what he said because the media exaggerate a lot."
