Nasri deal is done

WTTGT Writer: Simon Bourne (Site Editor) Follow Me

In the news today:

The Daily Mail have published a piece claiming that the Samir Nasri to Manchester City deal is wrapped up, according to the club. They [the club] say: ‘The deal is close to completion and will represent a significant victory for City with both Manchester United and Chelsea also keen on landing the Frenchman.’

The deal is set to be worth £19m and would be the second Arsenal player to join following Gaël Clichy’s £7m move earlier this week.

Rumours have been circulating for some weeks that Nasri’s biggest admirers were City’s rivals, Manchester United. However any United deal appears dead in the water following a salary offer exceeding £150,00 per week from Eastlands.

    We have a choice. We can either believe the Daily Mail or the Emirates official news. Nothing has emerged from the latter source. End of…

    “The club” says so? Have they mentioned this in their club website or their chairman spoke with you directly? What is the source my dear friend? Nice try at a rumor, we found out that you just bluffed.

    From Arsenal's perspective, it would be a loss, but it should be relatively easy to recuperate. As has been said, Nasri has only enjoyed a good half-a-season, which isn't much. He's 24 and if we get 20 mil for him, that's just nice. I don't think he merits more.
    From ManC's perspective, it would be a rather slim gain for several reasons. He can't replace Silva, for one, so he'd have to look out for his supposedly favoured spot, behind the striker. With Tevez and Balotelli up front, it might prove hard to compete. But more importantly, if Tevez finally leaves MC, they are liable to lose out on the next season, regardless of their buys. They would have to rebuild the team, and I'm sure they wouldn't focus on Nasri. And if they would, it would prove to be a mistake.

    i think the news that nasri signs or will sign for inter or an other italian club or some other league will sound a lot more pleasing and better. And if nasri himself willl find it comfortable to be in man city, then somethings wrong. Definately with either wenger or nasri or the club. This might also be another Torres situation.

    does anyone actually care?? I've been a goon my whole life, i've seen players come and go, some disappointing moves, others not. My belief, trust, and faith in Wenger and the board is so low at the minute that nothing surprises me. If Nasri goes, i say good riddance. He is another one of these players that is getting too big for his boots (Adebayor springs to mind). First half of the season he was unreal, but second half? Where was he? He disappeared when it mattered. Time for Wenger to get some players who will fight through thick and thin for the club, or time for wenger to go if he brings in another gutless French player.

    the biggest setback is losing out on alvarez. for the mother of christ's sake just pay a couple of million more and he could have been ours. sick and tired of lord wenger's stingy ways.

    Disgruntled players will never be of any use to a club. Case examples are Fabregas last season and the disgruntled Torres. Let them leave, the club can not get relegated without them.
