The playmaker was a flop in Serie A last season after his €25 million move from Werder Bremen and he has been linked with a return to the Bundesliga.

However, Juventus sports director Giuseppe Marotta has insisted that the sale of the 25-year-old has not been arranged.

"There has been nothing concrete done yet and at the moment the conditions do not guarantee that Diego will change club," he said.

Meanwhile, Juve coach Luigi Del Neri has said that he would like Diego to stay in Turin.

"We need Diego. He gives Juve the quality that we lack," he said.

The Italian media are speculating that the quotes from Marotta and Del Neri have been made in a bid to up Wolfsburg's bid for the player.

Steve McClaren's team are believed to be willing to pay a maximum of around €17m.
