    Real Madrid Moot Diego For Van Der Vaart Swap

    A major swap deal is being considered by Real Madrid as they look to bolster their squad by letting Rafael Van der Vaart to head back to Germany while Diego moves to the Bernabéu.

    Real Madrid are mooting an exchange deal that would see them sign Diego from Werder Bremen while Rafael Van der Vaart would head back to the Bundesliga after only half a season in Spain, according to a report.

    The Spanish giants have reportedly considered letting the Dutchman leave after he has failed to impress since joining the club from Hamburg in the summer, Bild report.

    If it was agreed that he were to leave, coach Juande Ramos would insist that a replacement was found and that has led Madrid to come up with the idea of a straight swap.

    Diego has been a long-time aim for Atlético de Madrid, but Los Merengues would be a more attractive option for the Brazilian, who is ready to leave Werder for one of Europe's biggest clubs.

    Van der Vaart has shown flashes of ability at the Bernabéu, but his inconsistency has seen concern rise over his long-term position in the squad and a move was rumoured to be under consideration last month.

    Since joining Werder in 2006 from Porto, Diego has been linked with various team but an offer from Madrid could be the transfer that he has been waiting for before making a push for the exit door.

    The German club would also be tempted by the offer of receiving one of the Bundesliga's most impressive players during his time at Hamburg in exchange.

    A deal has been suggested for the winter transfer window, but Madrid could put the idea forward as part of their rebuilding plans for the summer
