It has been going on for some time now, the courtship of Werder Bremen man Diego by Turin giants Juventus, and it seemed that the 23-year-old had resisted the Old Lady’s advances, but reports suggest the Bianconeri will not give up so easily.
Il Corriere dello Sport says that Juve, who face a trip south to Palermo in Serie A tomorrow, will have to put €20 million on offer before they will be taken seriously, and they have already been in touch with the German club.
The German newspaper Bild believes that Werder’s initial refusal was only a symptom of playing hard to get, and that they are interested in selling the Brazilian.
Diego denied Milan a win in the UEFA Cup in midweek, and could well be facing the Rossoneri again next season, if the offer is accepted.
The top brass at Juventus said recently that they want to focus on young players, and Diego would certainly fit that description.
