Brazilian Diego has revealed that Real Madrid, Juventus and Manchester City are all interested in signing him, and that he will make a decision on his future at the end of the season. The Werder Bremen attacking midfielder joined the German outfit from Porto in summer 2006, and has gone on to score more than 30 league goals for the Bundesliga outfit as well as gaining 28 caps for his country. A move to a higher-profile club is appearing increasingly likely for the Brazilian. However, Diego says he will not make any decision regarding his future before the summer, as he does not wish to upset current employers Bremen. Diego, along with fellow countryman Rafinha at Schalke, hit the headlines during the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, with both players's respective clubs attempting to prevent them from competing in the football tournament. Barcelona were involved in a similarly long-running saga over the participation of Argentina'a Lionel Messi. "Juventus, Real Madrid and Manchester City are watching me," he said, as reported by sportmediaset. "In May, I will decide what to do. Now I am only thinking about the next few games for Werder. I will talk to the club when it is the right time. "My father is focussed on that side of things, while I am concentrating on playing. If a club is interested in me then they have to first speak to Werder. "At the moment, I know of offers but am only focussed on Werder. I am very happy here and my father can also see that."
