Villarreal midfielder Santi Cazorla has admitted he would find it difficult to turn down a move to Real Madrid, if the Spanish champions firm up their interest.
The Spanish international midfielder has been linked with a switch to the Bernabeu with Marca claiming that the club are ready to match his €16million buy-out clause.
“When Real Madrid are interested in you it is very difficult to take in,” Cazorla told Marca.
“They are the best team in Spain and the truth is that it would be very difficult to say no to. I am still in a state of shock.
“If Madrid came in and paid my buy-out clause fee then that would be a great moment for me.
“I do not know at the moment if they are going to do that or not, but I imagine we will find out in the next few days.”
Madrid are also reported to be interested in signing David Villa from Valencia and Cazorla is relishing the prospect of playing alongside his Spanish international team-mate.
“I hope that I can play alongside Villa as he is a great friend, but I have not spoken to him and I do not know what his situation is,” he continued.
