Around 4,500 fans watched on in the Estadio de la Ceramica as Cazorla was unveiled in dramatic fashion by Yunke the magician.

Former Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla says almost two years of suffering has been worth it after being presented as a Villarreal player for the third time on Thursday.

As the thick white smoke dispersed, the 33-year-old midfield magician was stood inside the tube with his arms folded and a grin on his face.

The illusionist filled a human-sized glass cylinder with smoke and went on to do hand gestures. This particular post has over 20,000 likes, with fans struggling to comprehend what they had just seen.

He has signed a one-year deal with the La Liga side having left Arsenal earlier this summer, with the playmaker's last official match for the Gunners coming against Ludogorets on October 19, 2016. The popular Spaniard rejoins Villarreal 7 years after leaving them but he is still incredibly popular in that part of the world.

"I'm grateful to Villarreal, not just for how they opened the doors to me when I was 18, but for their unconditional support through hard moments and for re-opening the doors to me [now]", Cazorla added.

And to mark his return to the club, Villarreal celebrated his signing with a quite freakish unveiling.

"Now it's time to give everything for this shirt and this club".
