“Nasri Has Told Wenger He Will Stay At Arsenal”
Samir Nasri has told Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger he will stay at the club for at least next season, according to Guillm Balague.
Nasri has been subject to intense speculation about his future this summer after he refused to sign a contract extension. Man City and Man Utd were both interested in the midfielder with a fee of £20m mooted. However, Arsene Wenger ruled out selling to a rival club and maintained Nasri would be forced to see out the remaining year on his contract despite the risk of losing a prized asset for nothing in a years time.
Reports resurfaced last week suggesting Nasri could still make a move this summer with some of Arsenal’s hierarchy looking to over-rule Wenger and accept City’s £20m offer. However, according to Balague, Nasri has now told Wenger he is happy to remain in North London for the coming season, and the Spanish journalist even suggested Nasri could be persuaded to sign a new contract if the Gunners have a good start to the season and a strong run in the Champions League.
