His form in Spain has been sensational though, with a host of goals for Villarreal before last summer's switch to the Vicente Calderon.
Forlan believes he did not get a fair crack of the whip in England and would been keen to return if the right offer was on the table.
"I didn't get much of a chance in England, but if there is a chance to come back and the offer is really good, I'd think about it," he told the Daily Star Sunday.
"I enjoyed living and playing in England, so it's still an option."
Aston Villa and Tottenham have both been linked with the South American this week.
