Diego Wants To Swap Werder Bremen For Juventus - Agent

It's destination Turin for Diego as far as his father is concerned, but will Juve take the hint?
Diego's father and agent, Djair da Cunha, has revealed that his son has his heart set only on Juventus as he tries to negotiate a summer move to the Turin giants.

The Bianconeri are keen on Werder Bremen's ace and negotiations over a deal are expected to start in the near future. Diego is seen as the ideal replacement for Pavel Nedved, who has already announced his retirement.

Voices in Turin have suggested a deal will take place soon and Diego's father has added weight to those rumours.

"Diego wants Juventus and he would win the Ballon d'Or in the Bianconeri jersey," he told Tuttosport.

"It's such a big satisfaction knowing that all the Juve fans admire him and I would be really happy if the deal with Werder Bremen makes progress.

"My son dreams about playing for a club that wins in Europe."

Although Juventus are favourites to land the midfielder, the agent has warned the Italians that they face some tough competition.

"There are plenty of clubs interested in him, especially from England and Spain," he explained.

Diego’s father is currently in Europe, but he is expected to go back to Brazil in May. Juve should know more on the player's availability by then.
