Nasri wants Man City stay

Samir Nasri is confident his future remains at Manchester City despite reports earlier this summer that the Premier League champions were open to offers for the France international, according to the Daily Telegraph.

It had been claimed by French publication L’Equipe that Roberto Mancini was willing to sell Nasri to make room for new faces after a mixed first season at the Etihad Stadium, but Nasri has revealed that he has spoken with Brian Marwood, City’s football administration officer, and that he will not be on the move again this summer.

Nasri said: “I spoke with Brian Marwood and everyone at the club and they want me to stay in Manchester.” It is only 12 months since City bought Nasri from Arsenal for a fee of £24m, as reported at the time by the Daily Mail, having spent three years with the Gunners. In his first season under Mancini Nasri made 45 appearances, scoring six goals.

The 24-year-old is currently on international duty with France, who play Sweden in their final group D match on Tuesday. Laurent Blanc’s side stand a good chance of reaching the quarter-finals and can confirm progression with a victory. Nasri had earlier scored against England in 1 1-1 draw in France’s opening match.
