Dad backs Barcelona move for Atletico Madrid striker Forlan

Diego Forlan's Dad, Pedro, is aware of the interest of Barcelona in his son.

Barca are eyeing the Atletico Madrid striker and Pedro said: "We are aware of the Blaugrana, a team that reminds me very much of the Brazil of the 1970 World Cup in Mexico.

"Forlan and Eto'o are incompatible? I do not think so. Both are outstanding and this type of player can adapt to any circumstance. Diego would be a great purchase for Barca.

"Now that he has settled in the Spanish Liga, he is scoring goals, a factor that should not be underestimated. Look at Thierry Henry: after coming from another European championship, he first had to adapt to the rhythms of Spanish football."

Pedro Forlan is a former Uruguay international.
