Forlan joined Atletico from Villarreal in 2007 as a replacement for Fernando Torres but has regularly been linked with a transfer elsewhere, with Tottenham Hotspur and Galatasaray rumoured to be amongst his suitors.

However, despite the speculation, Forlan, 32, said: "I have two years left on my contract. There are rumours that the club are looking to ship me out, but I'm relaxed. I have two years left on my contract and I aim to fulfil that."

Forlan is under contract with Atletico until 2013, but reports suggested he could be available for around €10 million.
