Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini doubts if a bid of 20million euros would be enough to prise playmaker Santi Cazorla away from the Andalusian club.

Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for the Spain international with media speculation suggesting a fee of 20million euros (£16million) could close the deal.

However, Pellegrini believes the 27-year-old, who cost Malaga a reported club-record 20million euros when he joined on a five-year deal from Villarreal last summer, is worth more than that.

"Selling him for 20million is to gift him away, I don't think the club is in a position to do that or has the intention to do it," Pellegrini was quoted as saying at a press conference in Venezuela where Malaga are on a pre-season tour.

"If important offers come in for players they are always worthy of consideration, but I don't think that for 20million Santi is going to leave the club because it would be, as I said, a gift."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
