The darling of both Manchester United and City, Samir Nasri will be staying at Arsenal according to reports.
The Mirror notes: “Arsene Wenger will play hardball with Samir Nasri and tell the unsettled midfielder he is going nowhere.
“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.
“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.
“City have already made an enquiry, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is keen and agents are trying to broker a deal.
“It has all left Arsenal with a major dilemma – whether to sell this summer or risk losing him for nothing next year.
“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.
Silly season again.
Nasri says he wants to leave Wenger says no way – except to a foreign club. The ball is now in Nasris court. If he wants to leave and join an English club then he turns down joining the likes of Inter and sits out his contract and leaves for free. He gets the club he wants, albeit a year later and Wenger gets his club no transfer money.
Bet he goes to an English club before the end of the transfer window
fuck him Sneijder is coming 🙂
