Werder Bremen midfield ace Diego admits he is flattered by comments from Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster that he is a target for the Spanish giants.

"There's been contact in the past," admitted the Brazil international.

"That a coach wants you is very pleasing. Schuster is very famous in Germany ... though I haven't read what he said. I am very happy in Bremen and recently signed a new contract."

Diego added: "I don't want to say too much else. Madrid are a great club, wonderful, but there's been no contact and my team is Bremen."
