At the end of long and complicated discussions, Nasri finally got to sign for Manchester City, ending one of the longest transfer sagas of the summer. He will be paid 185 000 pounds a week, twice the amount that Arsenal offered him.
Nasri is also complaining regarding Arsenal’s supporters in comparison with City’s supporters: “Arsenal has good fans but they are not that passionate since they moved from Highbury to the Emirates.”
“City fans are on the other hand really passionate. I remember when we played against City and lost 3-0, the crow was amazing. That’s what I want. It’s a big relief that after long negotiations and disscutions between the two clubs, I am finally a City player.”
Roberto Mancini, City’s manager is very confident that Nasri can play alongside David Silva, despite their similarities in style. He said about Nasri: “He’s a fantastic player because he has technique and mentality. Samir can play like a midfielder but also near the striker because he has technique, can score and assist.”
This acquisition is a golden one for Manchester City. With this crew, they are one of the Champions League favorites. We’ll see how will they act!
