Santi Cazorla poised for Malaga switch


Bookmark and Share

By Ryan Benson

Monday 25 July 2011

Villarreal midfielder Santi Cazorla has joined Malaga for a club-record €22m according to the latest reports.


The 2010 World Cup winner had been linked with English Premier League club Arsenal as the Gunners’ captain Cesc Fabregas edges closer to a return to Barcelona, however Malaga appear to have secured a deal for the player Manuel Pellegrini worked with at El Madrigal.


During the early hours of Monday morning, AS reported that the Andalusians were closing in on the signing, one that could be finalised inside 24 hours and in turn push their summer spending up to €55m, a remarkable figure by the club’s usual standards.


Marca understands that Villarreal were looking for at least €25m for their star-midfielder, but have negotiated a lower initial fee with future incentives actually meaning the Yellow Submarine could make considerably more than €25m.


Malaga want the deal completed before they depart for the Netherlands on Tuesday for their pre-season tour and are not thought to be completing any more signings until after they return.


Should the former Recreativo Huelva man sign for Los Boquerones, he will join a raft of summer signings including Ruud van Nistelrooy, Jeremy Toulalan, Sergio Sanchez, Nacho Monreal, Joris Mathijsen and Joaquin Sanchez.


Since making his debut for Villarreal in 2003, Cazorla has gone on to make 180 league appearances scoring 25 times and has represented the Spanish national team 34 times, notching up 13 goals.
