Juventus Will Open Talks With Atletico Madrid For Diego Forlan This Week - Report

Juventus move quickly to try and snatch Diego Forlan from Atletico Madrid before other clubs start to circle the striker.
Juventus will look to finalise a deal for Atletico Madrid forward Diego Forlan this week according to Rai Sport.

General Manager Beppe Marrotta will go to the Spanish capital to speak to the Rojiblancos in the hope the Old Lady can snatch the Uruguayan striker before other clubs up their interest in the 31-year old when the transfer window opens in January.

Coach Gigi Delneri jokingly commented that Marotta was simply going to say "hi" to officials in Madrid.

Mixed comments in the summer concerning the future of the World Cup 2010 star made it unclear if Forlan will leave Spain, but the former Manchester United man stated he would consider a move if it was right for him.
