Atletico Madrid striker Forlan dismisses Al Wasl claims

Diego Forlan insists he's staying with Atletico Madrid.

The striker denies claims from Diego Maradona's Al Wasl he's close to signing for them.

"I insist that I want to continue with this club although every day I am linked with a new club," he told Uruguayan newspaper El Observador.

"The day I was in Sweden for a publicity event, some papers said that I had travelled to sign in Dubai.

"My situation is rare because the media says I'm not interested in staying with the club but I've said that those stories are not true.

"At the moment I have not received any offer. I still have two seasons (with Atletico) and I am very content there.

"I will only leave Atletico Madrid if an offer is received which is too tempting for all parties."
