Wolfsburg reluctant to part with in-demand star Ricardo Rodriguez

BY foxsports • October 29, 2014

Wolfsburg have no intention of offloading Ricardo Rodriguez amid reports of interest from the Premier League.

The Switzerland international has been in Germany since 2012 and has seen his consistency in the Bundesliga draw admiring glances from afar.

The likes of Manchester United and Chelsea, along with Bayern Munich, are all said to be closely monitoring the 22-year-old's situation.

With Rodriguez's contract due to expire in 2016, it has been suggested that interest will be stepped up in January and again next summer.

Wolfsburg would have to consider any approaches, rather than run the risk of losing the left-back for nothing as a free agent, but general manager Klaus Allofs says there is no chance of a sale being sanctioned any time soon – with extension talks being planned.

He told SPORT1 media: "Ricardo Rodriguez is under contract until June 2016.

"It doesn't matter if we aren't able to agree a new deal with him, we will not agree to an early departure.

"Anyway, I am confident that we will be able to sign a new deal with Ricardo Rodriguez."
