Juventus defender Lucio is considering leaving the Serie A champions in January and returning to Germany, with Wolfsburg a possible destination.
The 34-year-old only moved to the Turin club from Inter Milan in the summer, but is already thinking about a move back to the country where he spent a highly successful eight-and-a-half years earlier in his career. Lucio, a World Cup winner in 2002 with Brazil, has been plagued by injury since joining the Bianconeri and has only made three appearances for them all season.
"Of course, I am thinking about my future," Lucio told Sport Bild. "And football is fast moving. I am here now, but could be with a different club in January. I want to play football and be happy."
During his time in Germany between 2001 and 2009, the commanding centre-back reached the Champions League final with Bayer Leverkusen before going on to claim three Bundesliga titles with Bayern Munich.
He expressed his fondness for the country, and revealed that a move to Wolfsburg would be an appealing route back there.
"The Bundesliga is an option," he said. "If there was a chance, why not? I had eight great years in Leverkusen and especially with Bayern. My family and I were very happy there. We love Germany.
"Wolfsburg is a club eying great things in the future. VfL would certainly be an option. They are a very well-run club."
