Luiz Gustavo explains tough decision

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hinted Luis Suarez and Wayne Rooney are still transfer targets for the north London club

Luiz Gustavo has said it has been "the most difficult month in my life" after he chose to leave Bayern Munich to join Wolfsburg amid interest from Arsenal.

• Schaaf: The Gustavo conundrum

Gustavo, 26, secured his transfer to Wolfsburg on Friday, with the Brazil international unlikely to play regularly at Bayern in the coming season following the arrivals of Mario Gotze and Thiago Alcantara.

The midfielder had been linked with a switch to Arsenal before choosing to remain in the Bundesliga and sign for Wolfsburg, who finished 11th in the top flight last season.

"Wolfsburg are a top club. I like Germany. The security the country gives me," he said. "I have considered everything. I knew about everything. My heart decided on Wolfsburg.

"Wolfsburg have always been after me. They wanted me from the very beginning. That is the reason, I am here. It is a good project here."

When pressed on his motives for moving to Wolfsburg, Gustavo indicated that regular first-team football was a priority ahead of the 2014 World Cup.

"He [Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari] spoke his mind and that helped me find a decision," Gustavo said.

"There were many other factors, too. The situation was not easy but I was in a luxury position."

General manager Klaus Allofs rejected reports that Wolfsburg paid €22 million for the player and had put Gustavo on a €8 million salary.

"That overstates the case," Allofs said, before adding that he was "delighted to have beaten international competition to the signature of Gustavo".

He also played down the involvement of Volkswagen in the transfer -- VW own Wolfsburg, while the company's chairman Martin Winterkorn is on the Bayern board. “VW might have encouraged us, but that’s all,” Allofs added.

Luiz Gustavo's 40 tackles in 22 Bundesliga matches for Bayern Munich last season.
