Diego may leave Wolfsburg this summer with the German club yet to offer him an extension.
VfL Wolfsburg haven’t enjoyed the greatest of seasons this time around, especially during the early part when Felix Magath was in charge. Currently in thirteenth spot in the Bundesliga, Wolfsburg have seen their fortunes change over the last few weeks and relegation seems most unlikely for now.
Another issue for Wolfsburg this season has been their extremely high wage budget. Even without European football over the last few campaigns, the Wolves are among the highest paying clubs in Germany. Amongst this list of high earners is Diego, the Brazilian in fact topping the list at the club. With change imminent at the club and a cut down on costs the story of the future, talk is rife of a move out of Wolfsburg for Diego.
The Brazilian’s contract runs out in June 2014 and there seems to be no sign of an extension being offered in the near future. The Brazilian midfielder said, “After this season we should see what is best for the club and me. It also depends on what plans Wolfsburg have for the future.”
BILD also reported that Diego is wanted by his former club Atletico Madrid. With the Madrid club currently lacking an experienced figure in the attacking midfield department, Diego will prove to be a useful addition. With Diego’s contract running out in 2014, Wolfsburg will be most keen on cashing in this summer and could well let him go for a knock down price.
Fellow Brazilian, Josue, has been released by Wolfsburg and returned to his home country to play for Atletico Mineiro. The 33-year-old didn’t enjoy the best of seasons for Wolfsburg and will hope to end his career on a high in Brazil
