REPORTS: Nasri To Stay At Arsenal After City Talks “Break Down”

Samir Nasri is set to remain at Arsenal after his move to Man City appears to have fallen through at the last minute.

Nasri had been expected to make the move to City after the Manchester club agreed a £22m deal with Arsenal, but according to several reports the deal has hit a sudden stumbling block and collapsed.

Arsene Wenger surprisingly included the Frenchman in yesterday’s 0-2 defeat to Liverpool and claimed he had shown terrific commitment and a great attitude during training. When quizzed about the potential collapse of Nasri’s transfer after the Liverpool game, Wenger remained coy and gave little away.

He said: I don’t know [what will happen]. I always said that I would try to keep Samir Nasri and I have never changed my mind on it because I played him today, to the surprise of everybody. He loves the Club, he wants to play for us, if we decide to sell him we will do it and we have to stand up for it. At the moment I am happy he is here. I don’t know if he will play on Wednesday, we will just play the game.

Roberto Mancini did however suggest that there could have been a late issue with negotiations:

“I don’t know why [Nasri hasn’t signed yet], but it is probably because he is a good player, or because there is some problem [with negotiations]“, said Mancini.

It seems reliable French TV channel Canal+ were the first to reveal the deal had collapsed after claiming their Emirates sources had told them the deal and hit the buffers and Nasri would now remain with Arsenal for the final year of his contract and walk away on a free next summer.
