The father of Werder Bremen star Diego says his son would love to join Real Madrid, despite the midfielder signing a new deal through to 2011 with his German club.

Djair Ribas de Cunha said: "It would be a dream come true for Diego to play for Real Madrid.

"No-one from Real has spoken directly with me, but I know he's on the list of coach (Bernd) Schuster's preferred players.

"If Real wants him, they must talk to Werder. But I'm sure it won't be difficult to reach an agreement."
