City in frame for Forlan - but Diego is not keen on Spurs or Sunderland

Diego Forlan could be set for a return to Manchester after his agent revealed there was plenty of interest in the Uruguay international.
The former United striker is said to be attracting the blue half of the city and has been tipped for a summer exit from Atletico Madrid.
Scouts have flocked to see the 29-year-old, who has hit 19 goals for under-performing Atleti this season, and his agent Daniel Bolotnikoff admits that they will evaluate all the options at the end of the season.
'I have received calls from big European clubs requesting information about the situation, but I am not authorised to give their names,' the agent told Sky Sports. 'My answer is always the same. Atletico Madrid will decide on this subject.'
Bolotnikoff insisted Forlan was happy at the La Liga club, but admitted: 'Forlan could have a big role in England.'
Sunderland and Tottenham have been linked with bids for the former Villarreal player, but Forlan said: 'Now those (clubs) are not of interest to me.'
Forlan scored 27 in 99 games for United between January 2001 and August 2004. In 51 internationals he has scored 19 goals.
