Flamengo target Diego Ribas 'would be interested in a move back to Brazil' says agent

Fenerbahce playmaker Diego Ribas could be on his way out of the Istanbul based club this summer following a disappoint season.

The 30-year-old joined the Yellow Canaries in the Summer on a free transfer but has failed to live up to the fans expectations.

The Brazilian giants Flamengo are one of the many clubs linked with Diego in recent weeks.


“Without doubt he would be interested in a move back to Brazil – it’s always good to return to your home country.” Diego’s agent and father Djair Ribas was quoted as saying by Sambafoot.
