Transfer news: Malaga have rejected a bid fo Santi Cazorla
Malaga have rejected an offer from an un-named club for Santi Cazorla.
Arsenal and Tottenham have been interested in the 27-year-old Spain international and it is not known if they are the side who have had the bid rejected.
“There are always offers made for certain players, when it comes to team restructuring,” Malaga manager Manuel Pellegrini told the club’s official website.
“At the moment, we’ve been offered 20 million euros for Santi Cazorla; selling him for this amount of money is practically giving him away.
“I don’t think the Club has any intention of doing so; I’ve spoken to Abdullah Ghubn and the Sheikh a lot about this, and they’re not thinking about it.
“I believe it would belittle our intention to play in the Champions League, obviously getting offers for players is always worth considering, but Santi leaving here for 20 million wouldn’t look good to other teams.”
