Chelsea Want Nasri & Cahill – Madrid Want Fabregas

By on July 2, 2011

Manchester United and Manchester City are the two clubs known to be interested in Arsenal’s Samir Nasri, and with other foreign clubs preparing to make a move for the Frenchman, Nasri is very much in demand. Now, reports are stating that Chelsea will make a move for the Arsenal midfielder if their bid for Luka Modric does not materialize into a deal.

Arsenal are still trying to persuade Nasri to sign a new contract, but as the days go by, it looks more and more likely that the 24 year-old is looking for a move away. He has plenty of options, and if he does decide to move on from Arsenal, he will have a tough decision to make as to what reasons he should make that move. Whilst he has said in the past that he wants to win trophies, which now suggests that a move to United or Chelsea more likely, Manchester City are said to be prepared to offer much larger wages.

Nasri is said to want £110,000 per week in wages, with Arsenal offering £90,000 and all of the prospective clubs that the Arsenal midfielder could join are willing to match Nasri’s demands. It seems Arsenal have come to accept that hey wont be able to  match the huge weekly payments that their rival clubs like United, City and Chelsea can afford.

Chelsea are also trying to outbid Arsenal for the Bolton defender Gary Cahill according to some reports. Yes, the new Chelsea manager, Andres Villas-Boas is said to be monitoring the situation with the seemingly inevitable departure of Cahill, as he looks to find a long term replacement for John Terry at the centre of defence. Arsenal have targeted Cahill along with Chris Samba, with the former proving to be the more expensive option at £17 million. City, the club interested in every player that your club is interested in, also want the 25 year-old. With Chelsea and City’s budgets, you would have to put them down as favourites ahead of Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid are prepared to rival a Barcelona bid for Cesc Fabregas, rating the Arsenal captain at £45 million – an amount Barcelona cannot pay due to their debts. It would be highly unlikely however, that Fabregas would even think about a move to Real Madrid because of his childhood connection with Barcelona. That is all he really wants – to join Barcelona. Apparently Madrid see Fabregas as a long term replacement to Xabi Alonso.

    Do you know what makes me have a little chuckle every time I pick up the paper. When it says Chelsea/City/Arsenal are in for Cahill. Arf Arf Arf. None of them are, why would they be interested in a player who couldn’t get in villas first team, who is further down the england pecking order than mathew upson, who has played one half of one good season, who was involved in the worst fa cup semi final display since 1927? why?

    why r city nd chelsea bothering with nasri they dont need him chelsea have essien,lampard and john obi mikel.Man city just want him because man utd want him.If nasri is all about the money hell go to city but if he wants to win trophies hell go to utd or chelsea.Personally i thik he should go to utd because hes not going to win trophies with city and he probably wont start for chelsea and hes definately going to start for utd his biggest competition is michael carrick

      Seriously? You reckon he will get games and united and its carrick that will get in his way???

      Nasri is a playmaker/attacking midfielder. United will have nani and valencia on the wings and play A Young in the midfield. Carrick will not get in nasri’s way and sits to deep anyway. Nasri prefers to play higher up the pitch near the striker, like A Young has done.

      City have Silva as their playmaker.

      Chelsea dont have a playmaker. Lamps had bad injuried last year and is getting on and essien isnt a playmaker. Mikel sits deep

      Out of all 3 clubs, chelsea are the most desperate for a playmaker and nasri is more likely to jump straight in the squad than the other 2
