Blanc: Arsenal Trying To Sell Nasri This Summer

By on August 10, 2011

France manager Laurent Blanc has revealed that Arsenal are trying to find a new club for midfielder Samir Nasri, who will not sign a new contract at the club.

Nasri has only one year left on his current contract and is refusing to sign an extension. Arsene Wenger had initially stated his intent to force Nasri to stay and see out the final year, but it seems he has now softened this stance and will let the Frenchman leave this summer.

Man Utd were the early front runners before rivals Man City became the favourites for his signature, with a new £22m bid mooted. But it’s understood Arsenal are keen to find a foreign buyer if possible. Speaking ahead of tonights friendly against Chile, France manager Laurent Blanc said:

“As far as I know he’s still an Arsenal player [at the moment]. I know he’s in talks with his club, not about signing a new contract, but to find a new club as he told me he won’t be signing a new contract”

    This is seriously beginning to annoy me. Please just sell him and fab and get on with it for Gd’s sake its bloody demoralizing for the other team members we need to start focussing on the weekends fixture and also the task of beating Udinese. I’m pleading with AW to resolve this as well as our defensive frailties ASAP

    What is this Blanc pr*ck doing? It’s not his place to be commenting on this. He obviously caught the asshole bug during his spell at Man U!

    I am starting to think we should sell this mercenary Nasri and keep Cesc for one more year just to piss off those Catalan w*nkers. Cesc will always give his all in an Arsenal shirt and we can still get over £30million for him next year. Nasri will go for free next year and he would probably play pants this season.

    Sell Nasri, buy Mata. Then unless Barca cough up the full £40million we keep Cesc for another year and he can go next season. Oh an take the Captaincy away from him.

    Good! Let the little swine go to Man City and get kicked out of Europe by UEFA when they overspend in coming seasons. Besides we’ve got a work permit for Miyaichi who already looks a better player. Click on my name!
