Diego Ribas

Diego Ribas da Cunha’s agent and father Djair Ribas has dismissed reports linking the Fenerbahce playmaker with a move to Flamengo in the summer.

The former Atletico Madrid midfielder has been rumoured to be on his way out of the Istanbul based club following a turbulent season.

“I have not spoken with anyone at Flamengo. I don’t know where this news is coming from. Diego has two more years contracted with Fenerbahçe.” Djair was quoted as saying by Sambafoot.
