Former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan has set his sights on rejoining Penarol, according to his father and representative.
The 36-year-old began his youth career with the Uruguayan giants, but quickly left for Danubio and then began his professional career at Independiente.
And having played for some of world’s top clubs, Forlan now hopes to return to where it all started for him.
“Diego wants to play in Copa Libertadores with Penarol and if it does not be in the middle of the year, it will be early in 2016,” Pablo Forlan said in an interview with Despues de Hora.
Forlan has a contract until the end of July 2015 with Cerezo Osaka and chances are he will be returning to Uruguay this summer.
The veteran forward has been in fine form this season, scoring 10 goals in 14 league appearances, and his experience can certainly help Penarol in next year’s Copa Libertadores.
Diego Forlan has recently retired from the national team after becoming the country’s most capped player with 112 appearances and 36 goals.
