Juventus are up against a dead wall again in their desire to lure a gem from the German Bundesliga.The Old Lady of Turin was keen to import Brazilian playmaker Diego from Werder Bremen but it now seems that the move will be snapped off for good.
Goal.com quotes director of sport Klaus Allofs as saying Bremen are not even remotely inclined to talk about Diego with any club. He said:
”Juventus has not submitted any offer, but in any case we do not have the slightest intention whatsoever to discuss a transfer of Diego, not with Juventus nor with any other team.”
So there flies away Juve’s hopes of making a big-name signing in January. Well, there was never a great chance that the Italian giants would have been able to prize Diego away from Bremen. After all, they are second in the Bundesliga and behind Bayern Munich only on goal difference – and Diego, after struggling times in Portugal with FC Porto, would certainly like some silverware with Werder Bremen. Maybe Juve should return in the summer.
