Diego Moves To German Side Wolfsburg

Selebrate Juventus players

First he was leaving, then he was staying, and now it appears that Diego is definitely leaving.

Brazilian playmaker Diego has reportedly agreed to terms of a deal with German Bundesliga side Wolfsburg and the attacking midfielder’s targeted club had the Brazilian complete a medical on Wednesday. Diego is expected to sign a four year deal with the German squad by the end of this week and the transfer fee for the star was reported to be worth around $15 million.

And the Brazilian’s time in Serie A was brief having just signed a five year deal with Juventus last season. But Diego never seemed to fit into the Serie A side’s plans and fitness and form saw the former Werder Bremen standout miss plenty of action last season and watch most matches from the bench. The move to Wolfsburg will probably be a good one for the young twenty five year old considering the great success the midfielder has already enjoyed in Germany.

Wolfsburg’s managing director Dieter Hoeness confirms the arranged deal:

We have reached an agreement with Juventus over the transfer today. This evening, his father and his assistant are due to arrive here.

And it appears that Juventus continue to revamp their squad following their frustrating performance last season. Diego was one of the few young budding stars Juventus had owned the rights to heading into this year, but with the addition of midfielder Alberto Aquilani from Liverpool it appears the Italian side has already found the perfect replacement for the Brazilian player that didn’t fit into Juventus’ plans.
