TRANSFER NEWS: Manchester United Target Samir Nasri

By on April 24, 2011

Apparently, Old Trafford chiefs have switched their attentions to Arsenal superstar, Samir Nasri from the possible signing of Sneijder in the summer.

Manchester United think that they will be able to get Nasri on the cheap, as he still hasn’t secured a long term future with the Emirates outfit. Nasri is also wanted by clubs such as Barcelona and it seems that the lack of silverware will drag him away from London.

On the other hand, Sneijder has a deal with Inter Milan that will last through to the year of 2015. The Sunday Times report this

Nasri’s situation is particularly perplexing as Arsenal believed they had agreement on a new four-season deal that would have almost doubled the 23-year-old’s annual gross salary to £5m. Before Nasri formally signed the new contract, however, Arsenal were knocked out of the Champions League by Barcelona, lost the League Cup final to Birmingham City, and exited the FA Cup to United.

But who could really blame him? Arsene Wenger has even mentioned that he won’t spend in the following summer, so it looks like he will be moving on in the summer as well.

    Its true who can blame him? I’ve been an Arsenal fan for over 30 years now and I like so many others have had enough. We’ve lived on false hope and broken promises for 6 years now and it’s filtered thru to the players. The team is becoming more and more like an academy or a feeder club when instead players should be wanting to come and play and stay. I’m sorry but I think/feel that Mr Wenger has become to stubborn and maybe even stale and for a club like Arsenal it just isn’t good enough. People say no player is bigger than the club well maybe no manager is either!?

      I’m sorry, but you should be more dedicated to Arsenal Boycie, and you too Samir Nasri! He’s 23, and Arsene made him the player he is today. Nasri should at least repay Arsenal and Arsene by actually attempting to help the side win a trophy and stop MOANING!! He’s a great player, and Arsene got rid of William Gallas to keep him

    This is possibly the worst story i have ever seen. 1st of i support manchester united and what would nasri add to our team? we saw how good he was vs Barcelona. and he would never go to us anyway he always repeats how manchester united are not even that good and arsenal are the best team in the premier leauge

    jesus its horrible reading any arsenal news at the mo. every arsenal fan is going crazy.. im an arsenal fan and iv been angry lately at the way we’ve handed the title away to united, iv screamed at the tv pulled my hair out when every team comes back at us and stood there in shock as we lost the cup. but all this talk of the manager going is crazy.

    with out him we wouldn’t be the team we are and think we’re going to win every game. the players are shook cos the press and the fans wont leave them alone. i can’t understand how its always us falling apart when theres a whole list of teams below us.its time we stop making a show of ourselfs and our club and stand by our team and this will stop.

    the players will be sicken about this year and hopefully want it more next(they know it could have been won by now). we need to get rid of dead wood and bring in 3 big players( but not for crazy prices )but it cant happen now. so as much as they annoy me too there still a part of our team so back them and who knows they might give us a nice goodbye.

    3 players are all me need to buy and we’ll be unstoppable

    Hold on Ali how can you say I should be more dedicated to Arsenal? If I had a normal 9-5 job and my boss promised me a pay rise and this and that but it never mayerialised over 6 years I would be pissed off, yes? Being an Arsenal fan is like ‘Grapes of Wrath’ when they get so close to a trophy then it is taken away. I have always been behind the team and Mr Wenger but you can only take so much. Listening to the same reasons/excuses season after season is like listening to the proverbial scratched record. I think Arsenal fans deserve more from such a big club for all their hard earned and spent pounds, dollars, rupees, euros, rubles etc. All they need is a small tweak of experience and age shouldn’t be an issue as I think and it’s shown Gallas should have been given an extra 2 years. There is too much dead wood at The Arse that needs shifting and too many that talk the talk but don’t walk the walk. I’m sorry Ali but to gain respect you earn respect and I feel that certain areas of ‘The Arsenal’ are not showing that to fans/supporters like you and I mate, go The Arsenal!!!

    Samir has a point it’s true reflection of a professional player trophies are the measure of the perfomance not how you play well

    why do we always have to go for wingers havin valencia, park, welbeck, giggs(still playin) and the world class player nani ? i think we are about to miss our legend playmaker paul scholes, so instead of nasri let’s say wilshere…………………………..

    Arsenal would never be the same without Arsene Wenger so if the board do decide to sack him it would be the worst possible decision any club has ever made. Arsenal are undefeated in the premier league. They just need to work on converting draws into wins.

    As a Manchester United fan I would never want a rival player to join us i rather go for other prospects such as javier pastore, neymar.

    Arsenal have quality attacking threat what they need is a player like David Villa of Barcelona, or Hernandez of United someone who can guarantee them 20 goals a season. If they sign a striker of that quality Arsenal may just about win the title.

    Hopefully not though but as a footballing fan I appreciate the way arsenal play and find that watching them play can be quite entertaining.

    can i just say nasri isnt good eough for united ye he has done some good things this season but is mentially not a united player . he has gone missing to many times including against united . we will get sneijer there is an official quote were he says united are the only club wich he would play for in england and if fergie wants his man he will get him also costa to united ashley young

    As we know, Man Utd need Midfiler who can create the opportunity to get goals. so , can nasri play like that and any other guy who wanted for Man utd.

    i think Nasri would do alright for united but i still think we should get some british beef in midfield. Ashley cole would do well for replacing carrot-top scholes or nani (bit of a wimp) as long as he put on some muscle and stopped being such a push-over. We need some British aggression in our team not a europian take-over

    every body has to get a second or even a third chance, you can not just get rid off wenger, remember in the past Arsenal had trophes with him, all he needs to do is sit back and see where or what the problem is, then he might aswell get us some good defenders, about Nasri or The captin it is all up to them we donot support indivituals we support Arsenal.

    for me nasri is an awesome player . . He is 1 of the best midfielder in the premier league . . David silva is good too . . . . I wish manchester city buys him and gets rid of gareth barry 😀 . . . I think arsenal should sell fabregas cause he doesnt look happy at the emirates . So why keep him ? . I hate that him . . Why should arsenal keep him . There are lots of players out there who want to play for arsenal . . Afterall fabregas is not messi . . Arsenal needs a killer striker badly . .
