Nasri To Be Sold If He Doesn’t Sign New Contract

By on May 14, 2011

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger confirmed last night that Samir Nasri is yet to sign a contract extension. The Mirror reports that Arsenal have tabled a bid of £80,000 a week, but the winger has stalled on signing the contract.

The 23-year old could be sold in the summer or Arsenal could risk losing the Frenchmen on a free next summer. This has alerted Manchester City and Inter Milan who would be interested in signing the player. But Arsene has no plans to change his stringent wages structure; he said:

“The fast target is not to weaken our team but to strengthen it. We are hopeful but we will do it at the end of the season,” he said.

“I will do anything possible to make him stay, but I never speak about the conversations I have with the players.

“We will always have to respect our wages schedule.”

With a summer of rebuilding reported, Arsene cannot afford to lose one of his prized assets.

    Wenger please stop this sillyness with wage structure. give the guy what he wants or we will lose him. e.g rooney risked leaving and got what he wanted and look at his performances now they gave him it. wenger please give him what he wants!!!

    its a difficult situation for wenger as the wage structure should be adhered to.
    I have a feeling that Nasri is looking for more than money; he is looking for a committment from wenger to seriously invest in the team to challenge for silverware.
