Fenerbahce open Diego talks

Fenerbahce have confirmed that talks have started regarding a deal to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Diego.

The Brazilian returned for a second spell at the Vicente Calderon from Wolfsburg in January and he is under contract with Atletico until the summer.

He scored a stunning goal in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final against Barcelona, but his long-term future at Atletico is uncertain.

The 29-year-old is reported to have been offered a three-year contract to return to Brazil to join Santos, but he also has interest from Fenerbahce.

The Turkish club have confirmed on their official website that talks have started with Diego's representatives regarding a summer transfer.
