Rio de Janeiro, July 7 (IANS) Brazilian club Internacional has signed Uruguay striker Diego Forlan on a three-year contract.

The 33-year-old was confirmed as Brazilian football’s latest big name recruit on Internacional’s official website Friday, reported Xinhua.

It came hours after former Dutch international Clarence Seedorf was welcomed by 1,500 fans in Rio de Janeiro, where he has signed a two-year deal with Botafogo.

Forlan’s move comes after a disappointing season with Inter Milan in Italy’s Serie A.

The winner of the 2010 Golden Ball award for the best player at the World Cup, Forlan managed only two goals in 20 matches across all competitions with the Nerazzurri.

“Diego Forlan is now an Internacional player,” the Brazilian club said.

Forlan will follow in the footsteps of his father Pablo, who also played in Brazil with Sao Paulo and Cruzeiro.
