The Bundesliga club announced that the Brazilian midfielder Diego is set to join Wolfsburg from Juventus on Friday. He underwent a medical on Wednesday at the Bundesliga club.
The 25-year-old has agreed a four-year deal with Wolfsburg for a fee of 15 million euros.
The Brazilian joined Juventus a year ago from Werder Bremen for 25 million euros but struggled to score goals.
Diego spent three years in Werder Bremen and scored 38 goals in 84 league games, but at Juventus he scored just 5 goals in 33 games.
On Thursday VfL Wolfsburg manager Dieter Hoeness said, “We have signed the transfer agreement with Juventus. This evening we expect Diego’s father (his agent) to sign the deal Wolfsburg.”
Olympique Marseille’s newly signed France international Loic Remy has been cleared to play Tuesday despite a heart problem.
Remy, 23, last week had passed his medical but an MRI scan had revealed a possible problem with Remy’s heart and then he underwent further tests on Monday and results showed he could safely play at the highest level.
Marseille said that doubts about Remy’s health were removed after the player underwent additional medical tests on Monday that showed the heart abnormality was no obstacle to his footballing career.
Club doctor Christophe Baudot said that heart specialists consulted by the club were of the opinion that Remy was fit for practicing sport at a high level.
Marseille coach Didier Deschamps said he was “overjoyed” for Remy. He said, “Obviously it’s great news for the club.”
This striker joined Marseille from Nice last Thursday with a five-year deal for 15 million euros.
Remy said,”I am relieved to know the outcome. It will allow me to work with Marseille in good condition with a free mind.”
Remy also said that he never felt any specific pain throughout his career.
Hopefully Remy would be in the group travelling to Bordeaux for Saturday’s league game.
France international striker Loic Remy has completed his transfer from Nice to Marseille on Thursday.
The 23-year-old has signed a five year contract for 15 million euros with Marseille.
French striker Remy scored 25 goals for Nice over the last two seasons and had also been linked with interest from English clubs Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Stoke City and West Ham United. He has also been capped twice by France.
Remy is pleased by signing with Marseille and he said,”It has been a long wait and it is a new challenge for me but I need to get stuck in quickly.”
Marseille coach Didier Deschamps is hoping that the arrivals of Remy will jumpstart the season for his side and said, “I am happy that Loic Remy is able to join us and brings us all his potential.”
