Atletico Madrid defender Juanfran has revealed he turned down a lucrative offer from Arsenal this summer.

MOVING OBJECT

The transfer window is shut but the Rumor Mill has plenty to talk about.

The Spain international could have reportedly increased his salary had he accepted a move to the Emirates Stadium.

"It is true that I had an offer from Arsenal that any player would have liked to have accepted," Juanfran said to marca.com.

"But I am very happy here. For me, as everyone knows, there is no better club than Atletico."

The 28-year-old right-back joined the Colchonero club in January 2011 from Osasuna and has four years left on his contract at the Vicente Calderon.

Juanfran has been a regular in Diego Simeone's team and won the Europa League and the European Supercup with Atletico in 2012 as well as the Copa del Rey last season.
