Forlan content with life at Atletico

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan says he is happy at the club and insists it would take "a really good offer" to prise him away from the Vicente Calderon.

Forlan, 31, was heavily linked with a move away from Atletico after starring in last summer's World Cup for Uruguay, but a move never materialised.

The former Manchester United forward was again the subject of speculation in the January transfer window, with Tottenham among a host of clubs reportedly interested in acquiring his services.

But once again Forlan remained at Atletico and, despite struggling to replicate his prolific form of 2010 this season, he says he has no desire to leave the club.

"It would have to be a really good offer," Forlan said. "At the moment there is none, so I didn't consider anything. But at the moment, I have two years more of a contract at Atletico Madrid and it's a good team and I am happy there. You never know."

Forlan has been one of the hottest properties in La Liga over the past few years, having netted 128 Primera Divison goals since he arrived at Villarreal in 2004 following a difficult spell at Old Trafford.

And the 2010 World Cup Golden Ball winner will be aiming to demonstrate his goalscoring prowess again on Tuesday, when he lines up for Uruguay in a friendly against Ireland.

"They played a qualifying game on Saturday and some of the players have been playing a lot of games and have been rested," Forlan said. "But we came here to play a nice game against Ireland. It doesn't matter who they are playing, we are going to do our best to win the game.

"I know the team, I have been watching some games and we are always watching players. We know it will be a really tough team with good players. It doesn't matter whether they are young or old, every player all over the world when they get the chance to play for their national team is going to try to do their best. In this case we expect that."
