It’s 16 years to the day since Man United signed Diego Forlan for £7.5 million from Independiente.

Forlan was not a success at Old Trafford, scoring sporadically and struggling to play regularly for a side that featured prolific Dutch striker Ruud van Nistelrooy.

He had greater success thereafter, however, impressing in La Liga with both Villarreal and Atletico Madrid, in addition to being awarded the Golden Ball at the 2010 World Cup for a Uruguay side that reached the semi-finals of the competition.

Somewhat surprisingly, at 38, Forlan is still active as a footballer, recently signing for Hong Kong side Kitchee SC.
