Its good that great teams are interested in young players from Villarreal, but for the moment I tell them to leave them alone here.They still have to take steps forward. They both have a great personality, and their feet are on the ground.In Paus case he hears constant talk of [Manchester] City or Barcelona, but he is aware that he has to keep growing as a player and that in the future we will see where he can go.Cazorla has also clarified his long term future, with the 35-year-old entering the twilight of his career. Since returning to Villarreal, the Spaniard has been in magnificent form, earning himself a recall to the Spanish national team.I never plan anything long-term, let alone at 35 years of age. I will finish the season and see what my body tells me because every day I wake up the sensations are different.I always said that I was returning here to play at my best level and when I see that I am not at 80% I will step aside and give way to younger players.
