The darling of both Manchester United and City, Samir Nasri will be staying at Arsenal according to reports.
The Mirror notes: R20;Arsene Wenger will play hardball with Samir Nasri and tell the unsettled midfielder he is going nowhere.
R20;France midfielder Nasri has become a target for both Manchester United, Manchester City and Inter Milan after stalling on a new £90,000-a-week contract offer.
R20;The 24-year-old, who has one year left on his current deal, has made it clear he wants Arsenal to prove their ambition before he commits himself to the club, so could be ready to be the next big name to quit.
R20;City have already made an enquiry, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is keen and agents are trying to broker a deal.
“But the club have now told Nasri’s representatives that he is NOT for sale.”
Whether Nasri really is going to remain at Arsenal is anyone’s guess, but with Cesc Fabregas seemingly destined for Barcelona and Gael Clichy already having joined City, it may well be that Wenger has finally realised he cannot keep allowing his best players to leave if he’s any chance of catching United.
