Diego’s future is on stand-by

Posted on 16/08/2010


Juventus are increasingly unsure as to whether they should sell Diego to German side Wolfsburg, according to Il Corriere dello Sport. 

Diego has already apparently agreed personal terms with the 2008-09 Bundesliga champions who will be coached by former England manager Steve McClaren this season. 

Juventus boss Gigi Del Neri would like to keep the Brazilian playmaker after an impressive showing in pre-season. 

However, selling Diego would raise funds for other signings ahead of the transfer deadline on August 31. 

Juventus are hoping to use Diego as collateral to sign Wolfsburg’s Edin Dzeko, but the Bosnia international striker doesn’t appear to be on the negotiating table. 

Dzeko played for Wolfsburg at the weekend against Preussen Munster and had a hand in a calamitous own-goal, although that’s unlikely to discourage Juventus’ interest. 

This week will be decisive in determining Diego’s future as Wolfsburg are scheduled to get their Bundesliga campaign underway against Bayern Munich on Friday.
