Forlan admits Man Utd regrets: I would have liked to have played with Rooney

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan admits regrets over his time at Manchester United.

Of his time at Old Trafford, Forlan believes he could have struck up a good partnership with Wayne Rooney whose arrival coincided with his departure.

"I was very young at Manchester United and I feel that I was just starting to find my feet when I was sold and Rooney was brought in.

"If we had been paired together I think we could have formed the most devastating strike partnership in Europe but it wasn't to be," he said.
