Samir Nasri’s Man City Move ‘Nearly Done’, Arsenal Eyeing £26m Belgian Replacement

By Rumour Monger

According to the man himself, Samir Nasri’s imminent move to Manchester City is ‘nearly done’ and that the Frenchman will be leaving the club with a sense of ‘anger and bitterness’ after understandably taking being repeatedly called a ‘c*nt’ by the Arsenal fans at Newcastle on Saturday as a personal slight.

Nasri has posted the following update on his Facebook page:

“It’s nearly done. I will leave with bitterness and anger in my heart. I am proud for having played with the Gunners.

“I have been very disappointed by the supporters last weekend. I am still an Arsenal player but I will leave very soon.”

The general consensus is that a £23 million fee has been agreed and that Nasri is now quibbling over the last few details of a £165,000-a-week contract with City execs – with the deal expected to go through before the weekend.

With Cesc and Samir now dust in the wind, Arsenal are obviously keen to hire a replacement or two and it seems (according to L’Equipe) that Arsene Wenger is going to use his ‘Fabregasri’ moolah to raid Lille for the second time this summer and fund a move for their prodigious Belgian, Eden Hazard, though the French club have slapped a fairly hefty €30 million (£26 million) price tag on his head to supposedly ward off interest.

The money’s obviously available, but the question remains: are we ever going to see Arsene shell out that much on one player? Surely, if he’s ever going to break the habit of a lifetime, now is the time?

UPDATE: Nasri has since rubbished these quotes via his Twitter account:

“Just to make things clear I don’t have a Facebook so I never said I was leaving with bitterness. The guy who said that used a fake account.”

Though, of course, he hasn’t moved to dispell the rumblings that a switch to City is nigh.

  3. Kastrol says:

    I’m more concerned that Eboue’s left tbh

  4. Dale says:

    I wish I was called Eden Hazard

  5. Grant says:

    We need Arsene to splash that much on multiple players. We need Hazard, we need Mertesacker, we need Dann or Cahill, and we need another attacking player like Mata or one of the Brazilians from Shaktar.

  6. Terry Sheddingham says:

    Any relation to Micky?

  7. Montesquieu says:

    I’ll say this for a upteenth time but Samir Nasri needs facial reconstructive surgery, he looks like he’s related to Ribery.
