French newspaper L’Equipe has claimed that 23 year old Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri has grown frustrated with Arsenal’s lack of progress over the years and would consider a move to Old Trafford. Samir Nasri will be out of contract at the end of the 2011/12 season and could leave the Gunners on a free is he’s not given a new deal. Contract talks with the Frenchman and Arsenal have recently stalled and this would be an ideal time for Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United to make an offer for the midfielder.
I must admit that this would be a welcoming addition to Manchester United seeing that the likes of Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs are on the brink o retirement and the skillful play maker will be a good addition in solving United’s burgeoning need for an attacking midfielder.
Patrice Evra recently suggested that his fellow Frenchman come to United by saying:
“If Samir comes, he has to know there is no room for mistakes, each year you are playing to win. That is Manchester United’s culture.
Each year it is a guarantee of a title, I have been at Manchester for five years now and I can’t remember how many trophies I have won. 13? 15? So, ‘Petit Prince’, if you want to become King you know where you have to go.”
Evra’s comment won’t go over well with Arsène Wenger and Arsenal fans who already have a dislike for the player who once stated that it’s “Men Against Boys” when United play against Arsenal. Ferguson has been an admirer of Nasri for some time now so an offer for the Frenchman is something that has the possibility of being made but there’s huge doubts that Arsène Wenger will listen to any offers from a title rival.
