"There is one Indonesian club that asked me to bring Diego Forlan so far I have communicated (with Forlan)," Muly told Indosport.

"Everything is still in the negotiation stage, whether he’s interested in playing in Indonesia or not depends on the salary he wants."

Forlan, who won the golden boot award at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa has played for the likes of Villareal, Inter Milan Milan, Atletico Madrid and Manchester United.
