Penarol coach Diego Forlan has joked about re-signing Real Madrid midfielder Fede Valverde.

Valverde came through the system at Penarol before leaving for Real where he is now starring.

Forlan smiled: "I know him very well. The Spanish public likes him very much because he is calm and a good person.

"Would I like him to end his career at Peñarol? Of course, he grew up here.

"But it is too early to talk about it."
