Arsenal star wanted to join Tottenham Hotspur

Cazorla.jpgA bit of a scuffle has broken out in the Transfer Tavern this afternoon between fans of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, after claims from a former manager.

Harry Redknapp has led to all sorts of trouble at our bar after revealing that Gunners hero Santi Cazorla almost joined Tottenham Hotspur- which has sent the Spurs supporters into cheers.

The former-favourite for the England job in pubs across the country made the sensational claim when writing for London’s Evening Standard.

“Santi Cazorla was very nearly a Tottenham player well before he joined Arsenal in 2012. He was fantastic against us for Villarreal in a pre-season friendly in July 2010.”

“I went up to Everton to watch him play again a week later and then we spoke to Villarreal. Santi wanted to come. He was happy to join Spurs but there was a breakdown in talks over the fee.”

“It was a transfer that could and should have been done. He ended up being another one who got away.”

Whilst the Arsenal supporters at the bar are mocking their rivals because they ended up signing the Spaniard, who regularly wears the captains armband, they aren’t impressed with the claim Cazorla was happy to sign for their arch-rivals.

Arsenal fans, would Tottenham have beaten you to Champions League football in recent years had they signed Cazorla? Let us know below in the comments!
