Werder Bremen playmaker Diego is reported to be having second thoughts about leaving Germany to join Juventus in the summer.

The talented 24-year-old Brazil international has been interesting Juve for several months and had seemed to be clearly in favour of a move to Italy.

However, Diego reportedly told the Italian media: "I have received several important offers from abroad, Werder know that.

"On one side I am proud that a club like Juventus want me, but on the other Werder have always met my expectations and I am really happy here.

"I also have a contract until 2011. I could go, stay, or even decide to extend my deal."

Wolfsburg duo Zvjezdan Misimovic and Rodrigo Alvim were involved in a training ground spat on Wednesday.

Head coach Felix Magath was reportedly unhappy with the brawl as he looks to guide Wolfsburg to a shock Bundesliga title.

His side currently head the table by three points from second-placed Bayern Munich with six matches of the season left.

Bosnian star Misimovic had to be stopped by team-mates Eric Dejagah and Andrea Barzagli from landing a punch on Alvim.

However, Misimovic insists the brawl has been blown out of all proportion, telling Bild: "We shook hands after the incident and went on like nothing happened.

"Things can get intense during a training session and we shouldn't make too big of a deal out of this."

AZ Alkmaar midfielder Demy de Zeeuw claims that he is a summer transfer target for German club Hamburg.

The 26-year-old has been a key figure in his side's march to the Dutch league title this season, having also become a regular in the Netherlands national team over the last two years.

De Zeeuw told Voetbal International: "I almost joined Hamburg last summer and I know that they are still interested.

"HSV are a big team and signing for them is definitely an interesting option.

"I want to play European football next campaign, but that can also be in the Europa League. There's more to life than the Champions League.

"I recently made the decision not to sign a new contract at AZ, but that doesn't mean that I'm 100 per cent sure to be leaving the club this summer."
