Juventus Accept Wolfsburg's €16 Million Offer For Diego - Report

Highly rated Juventus playmaker Diego appears to be one step closer to a return to the Bundesliga as the Turin side have accepted a €16 million offer from Wolfsburg, according to a report in Tuttosport.

Wolfsburg and Juventus have been in talks about the transfer of the Brazilian international since Monday afternoon and they have now apparently reached an agreement.

The report suggests that the transfer could be a done deal by the end of the week, even though Diego has yet to agree personal terms with the Wolfe. The playmaker reportedly asks for an annual salary of €6m per year and it remains to be seen whether Wolfsburg are willing to make such an effort for the 25-year-old.

Diego joined Juventus from Werder Bremen for a fee of around €25.5 million in the summer of 2009, but he failed to live up to the high expectations in Turin.

Meanwhile, Bundesliga outfit Schalke are closely monitoring the situation of Diego, and the Konigsblauen are ready to make a move for the midfielder if his transfer to Wolfsburg falls through for any reason.
