We must have done a good job, at the ‘Football Transfer Tavern’, for talkSPORT’s last staff party because they’re back again and this time with some great news for our Arsenal punters.
Santi Cazorla, arguably Arsenal’s star performer last season, has been linked with a big money move back to Spain, with Atletico Madrid rumoured to be readying a bid.
Anyway, talkSPORT have now ordered their first round of drinks and while I pour them, they tell us that Cazorla has no intention of leaving north London after one season. This prompts a rather poor and half-hearted attempt at “Oh Santi Cazorlaaa”.
Cazorla told reporters:
“There has been a lot of speculation about a move to Atletico Madrid but I’m very happy at Arsenal, I have a contract there and I start training on Monday,”
“Perhaps I will return to Spain one day, but right now it’s very unlikely.”
“I still have unfinished business in the World Cup after missing the last one because of my back.”
“I really want to experience a World Cup, so I hope to have a great year with Arsenal. I hope this year is even better than the last.”
We now hope that this puts this transfer rumour ‘to bed’ but hey, anything is possible when the Transfer Tavern is open.
