Cape Town - Brazilian Luiz Gustavo has confirmed his desire to remain in Germany amid interest from Arsenal and Manchester United.

According to the Daily Star, the Wolfsburg holding midfielder is not interested in swapping the Bundesliga for the English Premiership.

The 27-year-old former Bayern Munich player was heavily linked with a move to either Arsenal and Manchester United in the summer but any deal for the player failed to materialise.

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

"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."

Manchester United manger Louis van Gaal, who coached Gustavo during his time at Bayern Munich, may have to move his attention to alternate targets as a result of the player's stance.

Gustavo will be in action for Wolfsburg when the German side travels to England to take on Everton on Thursday, September 18 for their Europa League clash.
