Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo insists Uruguayan striker Diego Forlan will not be joining Manchester City.

Cerezo believes City's lack of success in the transfer market will persuade Forlan that remaining at Vicente Calderon is in his best interests.

"I don't think Forlan is keen to go to Manchester City after seeing how Robinho is getting on there," Cerezo said in Marca.

"They are rumours and more importantly no-one has come to us to speak about the matter."
