Manchester United are eyeing up a sensational bid to bring Diego Forlan back to the club from Atletico Madrid, according to Tutto Mercato Web.

Forlan, 31, has been in sensational form in Spain since moving to Villarreal in 2004. After hitting just 10 goals in 63 games with the Old Trafford outfit, he has found the back of the net 123 times in 212 top flight appearances since.

This form has alerted manager Sir Alex Ferguson to the possibility of a reunion with the Golden Ball winner for being the best player at World Cup 2010.

United can expect to face competition from Inter to complete the deal in January.
