Porto midfielder Diego is becoming increasingly frustrated at the lack of first-team opportunities at the Portuguese club.


Diego is worried that he will be unable to force his way back into the Brazil squad for the World Cup finals if he is not playing regular first-team football.


The player's father and agent Djair Cunha said: "With Diego always being a substitute it's nearly impossible for him to be recalled to the national team.


"The first year that he went to Portugal is was very problematic because the team changed many coaches and players.


"This year Diego was getting prepared for being able to show all he knows, then the coach changed and the tactics of the team, so there isn't a place for him in the team."


It is now believed that Diego is in the process of trying to cancel his contract with the former European champions.


Cunha added: "We expect to reach an agreement with the officials of Porto to let him be free to choose any team away from Portugal, so he can keep working with another team.


"This experience in Portugal has really let him down because when he arrived he had other expectations."



This kid IS BRILLIANT! i saw him in the Copa Liberotes when we got Fox sports a couple of years ago, and when he played for brazil in the Copa America (south american Championships) he did well, cannot understand why he isnt first choice at porto, we should try and get him. porto payed £5M i think, the only trouble is like our current brazillian Silva, they dont have work permits yet.
