Santi Cazorla plays down Real Madrid link


Arsenal and Spain playmaker Santi Cazorla has played down reports linking him with a move to Real Madrid this summer.

The former Malaga player, who is currently on international duty at the Confederations Cup in Brazil, said he is happy in North London and wants to win trophies with the Gunners.

Some media reports in the UK had suggested the 28-year-old could be subject to a big money offer from the Santiago Bernabeu side – something that would not have been a positive piece of Arsenal news for fans of the Emirates Stadium club.

But speaking of Spain’s semi-final clash with Italy, Cazorla said: “I have three years left on my contract and I have not thought of anything like leaving. My plan is to continue at the club.”

He added: “Arsenal are treating me very well and I want to win a title with them.”

He made 45 appearances for the Gunners in his debut season last year, scoring 12 goals and providing a further 12 assists.
