Toronto FC head coach Ryan Nelsen would only smile when the Toronto Sun approached him last week about potentially inking Uruguayan attacker Diego Forlan.

As Nelsen walked away from the exchange following Canada Day training, to paraphrase, he quipped with a grin: "That would be a wee bit expensive."

He tailed off as he entered TFC's training ground, seemingly running from the topic, the final question in an otherwise lengthy one-on-one conversation with the Sun.

There had been rumours for a week that the Golden Ball winner at the 2010 World Cup was looking for an MLS move, with the Washington Post pointing to BMO Field as a possible destination.
