I Want To Return To Spain – Santi Cazorla

Santi-Cazorla_2814399Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has admitted he could return to Spain one day in the future, however his future remains at Arsenal for the time being.

The 28-year old joined the Gunners from Malaga last summer and impressed right from the start. He chipped in with 12 league goals and even managed a hat-trick against Reading. He was named Arsenal Player of the Year but missed out on a spot in the Premier League Team of the Year.

Towards the end of the transfer window, reports emerged that Atletico Madrid were close to agreeing a fee for the playmaker after agreeing personal terms however the rumour was quashed by both the Spanish club’s president and the player himself.

“As confirmed by Atletico president Cerezo there has been no offer. There has been much speculation, but I’m happy at Arsenal and I want to honour my contract with the club.”

Cazorla is contracted to the club until 2016 however the club will look to extend his deal in the next two seasons, however, the Spain international has confessed he could be persuaded to move back to his homeland once his deal runs out at the Emirates Stadium.

“Maybe one day I will return to Spain, but not today.”

Arsenal fans have nothing to worry about for now as Cazorla is totally committed to Arsenal and is looking forward to playing alongside new signing Mesut Özil.

“I am very happy that Özil is here. He is a spectacular player and we are very lucky we are going to learn alongside him.”
