No Chance Of Atletico Move For Cazorla This Season

No Chance Of Atletico Move For Cazorla This Season

Arsenal star midfielder Santi Cazorla has conceded that his reported move to Spanish outfit Atletico Madrid is unlikely to materialize this year, and also confessed that next season will be vital in his search for World Cup success.

Arsene Wenger was very impressed to see Cazorla stand out as one of the best players in the Barclays Premier League, never-mind the Arsenal squad. The Spaniard made his mark in the league with breathtaking performances in the midfield, using impressive pace and creativity on the ball. Adjusting to the League as quickly as he did, Cazorla’s talent was used effectively by his team mates, and was often seen playing one-twos and accurate long balls to the strikers. Given the squad’s lack of out-and-out center forwards, Cazorla had to conduct much of progressive play with his midfield partners. Theo Walcott adapted to Cazorla’s quick style well, and formed an incredible partnership with the midfielder.

Cazorla began his career at the Villareal B side, where he played 40 matches, before being signed by the senior side. After 53 appearances, the Spaniard made a season long move to Recreativo, before returning to Villareal for a four-year long spell. He then made a switch to Malaga in 2011, and just after a season, accepted the opportunity of playing for Arsenal. The 28-year old has played exceptionally for the side, and with 38 appearances, he represented the club in the Barclays Premier League more than any other player in the squad.


Atletico recently signed Cazorla’s Spanish team mate David Villa, and there was wide speculation about the former following Villa to Madrid. However, with Arsenal’s recent financial growth, there still remains hope that the Gunners will make certain high profile signings in the near future, improving their chances of silver wear next season.

According to ESPN, Cazorla did not rule out a move outright, but admitted that even though he would like to see a move back to Spain one day, it was highly unlikely this season, given the World Cup in the following summer.

Cazorla said, “Much has been made the subject of Atletico Madrid, but I am very good in London. I have a contract with Arsenal and I start training on Monday.

“Perhaps I will return to Spain one day, but right now it’s very unlikely.”

So it seems another key Arsenal player is happy at the Emirates, so lets’s hope we can add a few more.
