According to the Metro, Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla will leave the Gunners sweating over his future until after the World Cup, amid reported interest from Atletico Madrid.
The Spanish champions were last week linked with a move for Cazorla, as they look set to lose the likes of Diego Costa, Felipe Luis and possibly Tiago to Chelsea.
And instead of denying the rumours, the Spanish international has left Arsenal fans sweating by saying he will not make a decision on his future until after the World Cup.
“When the World Cup is over, I’ll start thinking about my situation,” he told Spanish newspaper AS.
“I don’t want to be thinking about it right now and I’ve told my agents not to tell me anything if an offer comes in.”
“But I know a few of the Atlético players – Godín, Juanfran and I know the side well from when I was playing the Spanish league but until the tournament is over, I won’t know if the rumours are true or not.”
Cazorla extended his contract with Arsenal back in March, but with Atletico set for a transfer windfall in the coming weeks, they could make the Gunners an offer they can’t refuse.
In my own opinion i sincerely think that the rumour going around that one of Arsenals’ most valuable midfielder in the person of Carzola will exit the Emirates for Atlético Madrid is unfounded and thus not true.
Carzola who scored the vital equalizer for us in our FA Cup final victory at Wembley just a month extending his stay with the club.
It is very unlikely that Carzola, now 29-year-old after picking up a trophy with the club, will turn his back at Arsenal where he has had quality play time and has settled well into the Arsenal team, making himself a vital part of Wenger plans for the future along side fellow teammates Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and the likes in the middle of the park.
