Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan reckons former club Manchester United will win the Champions League.

Forlan, 31 is backing Manchester United not just to beat Chelsea in the quarter-finals but to go all the way and win a third European Cup for Fergie in May.

“Manchester United can beat Barcelona in the Champions League Final this year – if they meet,” said the Uruguay and Atletico Madrid striker.

“I know what ­happened in 2009 when Barca won the final between them easily but I still think it is better for United to play them in one match, not home and away.

“I would be more optimistic now, especially this season when the one match would be at Wembley.”
