I want to stay at Wolfsburg, insists Gustavo

The Brazil international has been linked with Real Madrid this summer but maintains he is happy with life at the Bundesliga outfit

Luiz Gustavo wants to stay at Wolfsburg, despite rumours linking him with a move to European champions Real Madrid.

The Brazil international signed for Wolfsburg in August 2013 after failing to hold down a regular first-team spot at Bayern Munich.

Gustavo enjoyed an impressive debut campaign for Dieter Hecking’s men saw himself retain a starting place in Luiz Felipe Scolari’s Brazil World Cup team.

His performances in Germany’s top flight have led to rumours that Real may consider a swoop for his services should Sami Khedira depart the Santiago Bernabeu, while he has previously been linked with Barcelona.

However, a transfer away from Wolfsburg does not appear imminent with Gustavo insisting he is happy to continue at the Volkswagen Arena.

Speaking to Kicker, he said: “I am here, I want to keep playing and help the team here.”

Wolfsburg are currently in pre-season training and are gearing up for a DFB-Pokal first-round clash with Darmstadt 98 on August 17, before they open their Bundesliga campaign at defending champions Bayern five days later.
