Diego flattered by Atletico Madrid rumours

Wolfsburg midfielder Diego says he is flattered by reported interest from Atletico Madrid.

The 28-year-old enjoyed a successful season-long loan spell with los Rojiblancos last season and the Brazilian is more than happy to be linked with the La Liga outfit.

He told reporters: “If the rumors are true, that Atletico Madrid have an interest in me, it is always a pleasure to have a club like that looking at you.”

However, the midfielder insists he is fully-focused on the fortunes of his current club, who sit 13th in the Bundesliga table.

“We're halfway through the tournament and I just want to think of my team, who continue to treat me very well,” he added.

Diego has a contract at the Volkswagen Arena until June 2014.
