Santos president Odílio Rodrigues Filho confirms talks for VfL Wolfsburg midfielder Diego
Santos president Odílio Rodrigues Filho has confirmed talks are underway with representatives of VfL Wolfsburg midfielder Diego.
The 28 year-old, who won the Brasileirão twice with Santos at the start of his career, is out of contract in the summer.
He had been strongly linked with a return to Atlético de Madrid, where he spent the 2011-12 campaign on loan.
Rodrigues Filho insists, however, that he has began negotiations to bring Diego back to Santos.
“We are seeking an agreement with Diego, and then will look for one with his club,” he told Globoesporte.
Diego joined VfL Wolfsburg from Juventus for €15.5 million in August 2010. This season, he’s made 14 appearances, scoring three goals.
