The Spanish midfielder is currently away on international duty and is reluctant to be drawn into a debate regarding possible moves.

He has, however, stopped short of bringing an end to the speculation by ruling out a switch.

Instead, the 29-year-old midfielder has revealed that he has discussed life at La Liga champions Atletico with Diego Godin and Juanfran.

That would suggest that he is prepared to consider an exit from Emirates Stadium, despite being a regular under Arsene Wenger and still having three years left to run on his current contract.

Cazorla told AS on the transfer talk: “When the World Cup is over, I’ll start thinking about my situation.

“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 Atletico players – Godin, 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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
