“I do think about MLS and I love the U.S,” Cazorla said in a recent interview with Sports Illustrated.

“Of course, there's much to always think about with my career, but America is a place I definitely think about.”

Cazorla previously sat out over 20 months of action after two serious ankle injuries, with his playing days feared to be over.
