Samir Nasri is expected to undergo a medical at Carrington before completing a move to Manchester City over the weekend, amid growing claims from his homeland that the wayward Frenchman actually had his heart set on a move to…this isn’t going to go down well…Manchester United when he decided to pull the plug on his tenure at Arsenal over the summer.
Reports emanating from France this morning are suggesting that Nasri informed his representatives that he’d only be willing to leave for his preferred choices – United, Barcelona or Real Madrid – presumably right up until the point that neither of the Spanish sides showed the slightest bit of interest in him, Arsenal refused to sanction a move to Old Trafford and City wafted a £175,000-a-week deal under his nose.
Is there still time for a last-minute gazumping? Or would United be better off dodging the bullet on this one?
