The latest twist in the on/off getting a little tiresome Samir Nasri saga comes courtesy of one of the more reliable publications.
According to the Independent Nasri is determined to leave The Emirates.
The Indy notes:
“Arsenal were facing up to the fact they may have no option but to sell Samir Nasri last night after the player made it clear how desperate he is to leave, following Manchester United’s £20m offer.
“The mood at Old Trafford has been one of mounting pessimism after the initial offer for Nasri, tabled three weeks ago, failed to elicit even a formal rejection from the north London club. The Independent understands that Nasri and manager Arsène Wenger did not hold talks when the midfielder returned to London Colney yesterday. But the club is establishing a full sense of how badly Nasri wants to leave, with the prospect of the silverware at United strengthening his resolve to go.”
What to make of this latest report is as confusing as the midfielder’s penchant for woolly neck wear but if there is any truth to the story then its seems United’s interest may have sparked Nasri’s desire to leave, rather than the other way round.
