Riquelme and Forlan off to Atlético de Madrid

According to reports in Spain Argentine ace Juan Roman Riquelme and Uruguay frontman Diego Forlan are set to move from Villarreal to the footballing purgatory otherwise known as Atlético de Madrid.

The clubs have agreed a fee of US$36 million and now it just remains for Madrid to agree personal terms with the players, which it hopes to do after the Copa America in which both are currently taking part.

Riquelme fell out of favour at Villarreal after a break down in his relationship with coach Manuel Pellegrini and has been told to find another club, despite sparkling form in leading Boca Juniors to the Copa Libertadores this month while on load at his old club.
