Good news for Arsenal fans who were beginning to think their club has lost the opportunity to sign Bayern Munich’s Gustavo to Wolfsburg. Yesterday and earlier today, various news media outlets in German ran with the story that Wolfsburg have beaten all other interested teams to the signing of the highly rated and very versatile Brazilian.
However, Luiz Gustavo’s agent who should definitely know what is happening with his client has come out to deny the reports. “He has not signed anywhere” Roger Wittmann Gustavo’s agent told Eurosport few minutes ago.
With that statement, the race to sign the Brazilian has become wide open again. Aside Arsenal, Inter Milan, Chelsea, Barca and the aforementioned Wolfsburg are keen on signing the 17 million rated Bayern Munich midfielder.
Gustavo played a total of 36 matches for Bayern Munich last season in all competition helping the German giants to win a treble. He was also part of Brazil’s team that won the last FIFA confederation cup.
