Roberto Mancini has warned that Manchester City could give up on the signing of Arsenal’s Samir Nasri if the midfielder plays on Wednesday against Udinese and is cup-tied for the rest of the competition. After watching City go top of the Premier League having beaten Bolton Wanderers 3-2, Mancini said that it would be a “big problem” if Nasri played. “I hope that we can have Samir Nasri [today],” he said. “I hope that we can have him in the next day but I don’t know when. We still have 10 days. We need some players if we want to complete our team. It’s a big problem because we have followed Nasri for 40 days.” Mancini earlier saw City win 3-2 at Bolton, thanks to goals from David Silva, Gareth Barry and Edin Dzeko. Ivan Klasnic and Kevin Davies scored for Bolton, and Manciniwas frustrated that his players had conceded two “stupid” goals. MORE
