Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan has laughed off reports linking him with Real Madrid.

With Liverpool and Manchester City also circling the Uruguay international, Forlan smiled: "I am calm. These are reports that come out periodically.

"It's clear that the press is creating a lot of news about Real Madrid. I have a contract here and I am thinking about qualifying for the next Champions League. I'm glad to be part of a club like Atletico."
