Diego Forlan (born May 19, 1979) is a Uruguayan footballer.

He was born in Montevideo into a family of footballers. His father Pablo Forlan had played for the national football team during the 1974 World Cup held in West Germany and his grandfather Juan Carlos Corazzo played for Independiente.

A promising tennis player in his youth, he decided however to follow the family tradition and concentrate on football playing for several South American clubs before transferring in January 2002 to play for Manchester United in England for a fee of £6.9 million.

He made his debut for the team on January 29 against Bolton Wanderers but did not score his first goal for the club, a penalty, until August 18 in a Champions League game against Maccabi Haifa.

His record of 17 goals from 95 appearances for the club does not compare favourably against team mate Ruud van Nistelrooy's 110 goals from 136 games, and it was widely thought that he would not start the 2004/2005 season in the Red Devils team colours. Forlan was strongly linked to a move to Spanish club Levante Union Deportiva, but signed on 21 August 2004 with another Spanish club, Villarreal, where he is one of the top scorers in La Liga.
