Ex-Man United striker: Luis Suarez should move to Old Trafford

Diego Forlan has admitted that he has tried to get his Uruguay team-mate to swap Liverpool for their fierce Premier League rivals.

Liverpool’s title challenge this season has been spearheaded by the breathtaking form of Luis Suarez, who has been in blistering goalscoring form for the Anfield outfit.

The Uruguayan is certainly not very popular amongst Manchester United fans after he racially abused Patrice Evra.

However, former United forward Diego Forlan feels differently and has admitted that he has recently tried to convince Suarez to jump ship and move to Old Trafford.

“We spoke a few days ago,” Forlan is quoted as saying by The Daily Mail.

“He asked me if I think he should stay at Liverpool. All I told him was to think about going to Manchester United.

“I know he loves Liverpool, the fans and the city, but I think the best thing for his career would be to move to Old Trafford.”

The likelihood of Liverpool selling their star man to rivals United is very slim and should Suarez look to leave Merseyside then he will surely seek out a side in the Champions League.

It certainly would be interesting to see the United fans reaction to signing Suarez though!
