Atlético Madrid striker Diego Forlán has admitted he would be willing to return to the Premier League if an agreement could be reached that suits all parties.

The Uruguay international endured a difficult two-season stint with Manchester United, where it took him eight months to score his first goal for him the club and he left after just two-and-a-half years.

However, the 31-year-old has gone on to become one of the most feared forwards in the game since switching to Spain in 2004, enjoying a prolific three-year spell with Villarreal before joining Atlético.

"If there is an offer and it's good for Atlético and good for me I would be really happy to go back to England. But it will have to be good," Forlán said.

"If a big chance to return to England came up, I would have to look at it. I loved my time in English football - the people, the fans, the football, everything.

"I wasn't sad the way it ended at United to be honest. I was really happy during my time there and thank the people at United for how they treated me.

"During my period there I learnt a lot of things and had a good relationship with everyone. The reason I left was because I didn't have the chance to play as regularly as I wanted.

"Now I have the chance to play regularly the way I wanted and I am really happy I'm doing that."
