Santi Cazorla is closing in on pre-season training with Villarreal as the midfielder looks set for an impossible return to playing at the top level.
The diminutive Spaniard knows he still has some way to go before he’s actually selected in a starting lineup, or even used as a sub, but all the signs are encouraging at this point that the Santi comeback is still on.
A report from Spain claims that Cazorla has been working alone for the last few weeks with his ‘enthusiasm’ at it’s ‘maximum’ which is just standard for Santi.
This weekend, however, he is undergoing a range of tests to determine where he is at with a ‘final decision’ about his future to be made in the ‘coming weeks’.
Cazorla passed the tests he was subjected to on Saturday with more expected on Sunday.
