Cristoph Kramer Shuns Man United And Real Madrid To Stay Put In Germany

The defensive midfielder has committed his future to his parent club, without ruling out the possibility of a move…

Cristoph Kramer, whose future has been the subject of much discussion over the past few months, has spoken to the German media and put some of that speculation to rest.

The midfielder is on loan at Borussia Mochengladbach from Bayer Leverkusen, and he has said he currently has no plans other than to return to his parent club.

“At the moment nothing has been decided. Although I am enjoying myself here [at Monchengladbach] I have a contract with Leverkusen and I’ll be back there in the summer, as far as I know at the moment,” Spanish paper AS quote the youngster as saying.

It’s not exactly a firm commitment to Leverkusen, and it leaves the door open for any club to have a go at signing the Germany international, but for the time being it looks like the 23-year-old will be staying in Germany.

This seems like a wise decision. Plenty of players have been ruined by moving to a side where they don’t get enough minutes, as would probably be the case if Kramer made the move to Real Madrid or Manchester United.

A move to Arsenal would make much more sense. The Gunners desperately need player of Kramer’s type, but given Arsene Wenger’s notoriously obtuse transfer dealings, it’s hard to know whether any offer will ever be made.
