========================================================

After much haggling, an agreement has apparently been reached.

Italian Serie A side FC Juventus of Turn reportedly have sold Brazilian midfielder DIEGO RIBAS DA CUNHA to German Bundesliga club Vfl Wolfsburg at the reduced rate of 15.0 million Euros, according to KRONEN ZEITUNG, Austria’s largest newspaper.

Five million Euros less than the original asking price then, however, the transfer fee could increase one or two million Euros contingent upon future performance; still, the purchase makes the Brazilian midfielder the Bundesliga’s most expensive signing yet this summer.

The annual salary for Diego, who signed a four-year contract with Vfl Wolfsburg, is said to be six million Euros per season.

So, it is back to the Bundesliga for the 25-year-old, who spent three seasons with Werder Bremen before being sold to Juventus for a reported 24.5 million Euros in May of 2009; Diego first arrived on the European professional scene in July of 2004 after signing with Portuguese club FC Porto from the well-known Sao Paulo side, FC Santos.

Diego did start in midfield for all three of Juventus’ Europa League matches this summer.
