Internacional’s Diego Forlan denies Toronto link.
Former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan has denied speculation that he is set to join Toronto FC.
The forward had been linked with a move to the MLS strugglers, who are managed by ex-Blackburn Rovers defender Ryan Nelsen and currently sit second bottom in the Eastern Conference, but Forlan has quashed any rumours.
He told Canadian media organisation CTV news: “I said I would like to play in the United States, also in the Middle East, but I have a contract here for another two years.
“I’m very happy here and I have a contract. Today you know, there are so many websites on the Internet to see if the source is right or not,” the Uruguay international continued.
“I would like to stay at Inter, until not only the (2014) World Cup, but until the end of the contract.”
The 34-year-old spent two-and-a-half years at Old Trafford before joining Villarreal in 2004. He later went on to play for Athletico Madrid and Inter Milan before returning to South America at the end of last season to join Brazilian side Sport Club Internacional in Porto Alegre.
The striker has recently been seen representing Uruguay in the Confederations Cup, where he managed one goal from three appearences as his country were knocked out in the last four by eventual winners Brazil.
