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.
