Despite speculation that he might make a move back to Spain this summer, Santi Cazorla has insisted that he’s happy at Arsenal.
Speaking to ESPN at last night’s kit launch, the FA Cup final free kick hero said, “I’m very happy at Arsenal, I’ve got two more years here on my contract. Arsenal is great for me. I’m happy to be here at the moment and focus on that.
“I always try to give my best on and off the pitch. I’m a happy guy, I’m a funny guy. I try to bring a good mood into the changing rooms on and off the pitch and that is what I will continue to do this year.”
The comment about two years left on his contract is an interesting one, and suggests that the new deal he signed back in March is one that improved his terms rather than prolonged his stay.
However, Arsene Wenger said at the time he was glad Cazorla, described as ‘an absolutely key player for us’, had committed his future to the club.
Either way, he still has at least two years left and now is not a time to be worrying. We can’t see Santi going anywhere this season so let’s hope he flourishes alongside Ozil, Sanchez and the rest of the new signings that are sure to be announced soon.
