Diego Forlan feels Darwin Nunez would fit in nicely at former club Manchester United.
The Benfica and Uruguay striker has been in fantastic form this season, scoring 26 goals in 27 games in the Portuguese top flight, as well as six goals in 10 Champions League matches.
He has been heavily linked with Arsenal this summer, as they look for a new centre-forward – but Forlan thinks his compatriot would be a good signing for the Premier League side.
“I think that he is a very good player, a good kid who is doing really well at Benfica and is enjoying a strong season,” Forlan told Breaking the Lines.
“It is not just the Portuguese league where he is doing well but in the Champions League too.
“He is a player who has a lot of potential and he could fit in at Manchester United. But obviously, everyone needs to have patience, although he is getting better with more and more experience.”
He added: “He would not be a bad signing for Manchester United and it would be nice to see him there.
“It is a club that gives you time, that makes you feel comfortable and as if you are in a familiar place, very cosy and nice.
“It would be spectacular having him playing for Manchester United.”
