Brazilian ace Diego could find his way back onto the world stage of football after a terrible few years at different clubs.

After his meteoric rise to the top with Werder Bremen, Diego looked destined to be one of the superstars of the modern game. However, after a poor season with Juventus and a disastrous season with Wolfsburg, the Brazilian fell into obscurity.

Atletico Madrid, however, have now entered the market for the Wolfsburg outcast and see him as a fitting replacement for the recent departure of Sergio Aguero. According to Goal.com, Diego has received an offer from the Spanish side and is now negotiating terms with them.

Per Diego's agent, the only issue now is agreeing on the wages. Diego has agreed to a cut in his salary to try and hurry the move along. He would like to secure a move to the club as soon as possible, as his chances of playing first-team football at Wolfsburg are slim.

After a falling out with manager Felix Magath, Diego has been on the lookout for a new club. The 26-year-old went so far as to say, "I don't want to be in Wolfsburg any longer."

Although his contract at Wolfsburg runs until 2014, both clubs would most likely agree to part ways after the issues experienced throughout the 2010/2011 season.
