Inter confirm Forlan approach

Serie A side in talks with Brazilian outfit for misfiring striker

Diego Forlan: On the radar of Brazilian club Atletico Mineiro

Inter Milan have confirmed Brazilian club Atletico Mineiro have made 'a proposal' to take misfiring striker Diego Forlan.

The Uruguayan ace switched to the San Siro from Atletico Madrid over the summer but has only scored two goals in an injury-hit campaign.

While insisting he wanted to stay at the club only last month, Brazilian outfit Mineiro have made an approach for the player.

Inter director Marco Branca told Uol Esporte: "It's true, we received a proposal from Atletico Mineiro for Forlan.

"We are in talks, but I cannot give any other information at this time.

"Forlan is considering this possibility, but nothing is decided yet.

"We are talking about it, but this is a complicated negotiation."
