Hong Kong champions Kitchee FC have today announced the landmark signing of Uruguayan striker Diego Forlán.
The 36-year-old veteran requires no introduction, having featured in the colours of a long and illustrious list of European giants including Manchester United, Atlético Madrid and Inter Milan.
On the international stage, the two-time European Golden Shoe winner was sensational in his country's 2010 World Cup campaign, in which he emerged joint top-scorer with 5 goals seeing Uruguay to a fourth-placed finish.
Forlán is expected to arrive in Hong Kong on January 10th and will undoubtedly provide a much-needed filip for Kitchee's AFC Champions League aspirations.
