Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola has denied reports that he pushed for the transfer of Brazilian midfielder Luiz Gustavo.
The 26-year-old, who joined the club from Hoffenheim two years ago, agreed a £14m switch to Wolfsburg earlier this week, with rumours suggesting that he did not feature in the plans of the Spanish coach.
"It was his decision to leave Bayern, I would have liked him to stay," Guardiola told a press conference.
"Now I wish him all the best in his career. He was an important player for this club, a great lad."
Arsenal held talks with Gustavo before signing a five-year deal at the Volkswagen Arena.
