Franco Di Santo is not going to be sold out this winter by his club Werder Bremen.
Talking to a website yesterday, Mr. Thomas Eichin, the Bremen GM, ruled out any chances of the exit of Di Santo.
Di Santo has had a heck of a time in Bundesliga this season. Playing 10 matches for Bremen, he has already shaken the net 6 times.
Because of his brilliant recent form, the Argentina international is getting recognized internationally now and the big clubs from Europe are said to be planning to grab him.
But, according to Eichin, Di Santo is in the long term plans of his club and thus, there is no question of him being let go.
In Eichin’s words, “Franco is going to here in 2015-16 too, no doubt. He is a guy who has fully matured as a player now. The next few years would be his best years and thus, we don’t want him to leave.”
“Obviously, when we get finished with the season, we will ask him what he thinks about his future and I am pretty sure, he will commit to the club for long.”
The current contract of Di Santo at Bremen will expire at the end of the next season. In all probability, he will be offered an extension when the ongoing season ends.
Before signing for Bremen last summer, Di Santo had been playing in England. He played for clubs like Chelsea and Wigan Athletic there, but, he never really found his feet.
The Argentinean’s strike rate at Chelsea as well as at Wigan was pretty ordinary, but, as soon as he went to Germany, he started blossoming.
In total, Di Santo has struck on 11 occasions for Werder Bremen in 34 matches. Out of those 11 goals, 10 have come in the top division which is Bundesliga.
