Following Diego Forlan: Guillermo Varela tells his life story from Peñarol to Manchester United (Video)

Not much is known about Manchester United’s mystery Uruguyan Guillermo Varela, so it’s convenient that the 22-year-old tells a bit of his life story in this video interview with MUTV.

Varela has made just 2 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils so far, but after impressing on loan at Real Madrid Castilla last season, he looks like playing a bigger part soon.

He explains in this interview that he’s essentially following in the footsteps of Diego Forlan, who also signed directly from Uruguayan giants Penarol.
