TRANSFER NEWS: Manchester United Target Samir Nasri
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.
