Former Man Utd star rejected by Colorado Rapids

Colorado Rapids say they have turned down the chance to sign ex-Manchester United striker Diego Forlan. Forlan, who spent two years at Old Trafford before moving onto Villarreal and Atletico Madrid, is currently on the books at Cerezo Osaka, but his deal with the Japanese club expires this summer.

Paul Bravo, vice president of soccer operations and technical director of MLS side Colorado Rapids, revealed he held discussions over signing the 35-year-old Uruguay international, only to eventually turn him down.

Bravo told the Denver Post: "He was a guy that was offered up to us. I wouldn't go beyond that. Everybody gets these players thrown out.

"Diego Forlan - did we have a conversation about him? Yes, we did. But it's probably the same conversation 10 other clubs in this league have had in that same time frame."
