Wimbledon champion Becker plans to cash in on it when he completes his 30-month sentence at Wandsworth Prison in South London.
He was jailed for hiding £2.5million of assets after filing for bankruptcy.
A source close to the star said: “It’ll be a warts-and-all diary on how he got himself in such a troubling position and then what life is like in jail.
“It will also focus on other things in his life.

“He’s trying to keep himself busy in jail. This is a good way.
“He knows there will be interest in such a book.”
Another source said: “He could use it to reflect and channel his experiences, feelings and perhaps fears in jail.
“Taking an active person and putting him in a cell is a difficult thing to cope with. The diary keeps the mind working.”
