Arsenal And Man Utd Disappointment In Chase For £27.5m Elegant Midfielder – reports

Wolfsburg’s Luiz Gustavo has said that he is not interested in leaving his current club any time soon, with the Brazilian star having settled in excellently to the club since his arrival from Bayern Munich last summer, as reported by the Daily Express.

The Brazilian midfielder moved to the club for £14 million in 2013, and was key in the German side qualifying for the Europa League last season.

There is a £27.5 million release clause written into the defensive midfielder’s contract, and this has tempted the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United into looking into him as a possible signing.

Wolfsburg managed to keep them away from their star player in the summer, but they were expected to make further moves for the player in January, given the low cost of signing him relative to his true value.

However, the 27-year-old has now said that he has no intention of leaving the club, having settled in perfectly.

Gustavo said: “I am very happy, VfL Wolfsburg is a great club to play for and I like living in Germany and the German mentality.

“I feel my future is here and I am able to imagine playing on for many years, because I identify with the city of Wolfsburg.

“Wolfsburg is a workers’ city, this suits me.”
