Diego Forlan admits he urged Luis Suarez to choose Manchester United over Liverpool. Forlan says Suarez can talk to him about anything, and when the chance came up to move to Merseyside, the former United striker insisted he should move to Old Trafford.

Forlan said: "We're close and we get on well.

"He's polite and keen to learn, always asking me questions and for advice.

"I like how he feels he can turn to me in good and bad moments.

"Like when Liverpool made him an offer. Of course, I told him he should join Manchester United.

"But I also spoke well of Liverpool and their history."
