Manchester City latest: Samir Nasri 'will sign a new contract' at the Etihad next week
City midfielder has agreed a deal in principle with the Premier League champions
Thursday 03 July 2014
Samir Nasri is set to sign a new contract with Manchester City when the clubs return for pre-season training next week.
The French star agreed a deal in principle with the Premier League champions before he went on his summer holiday, according to the Daily Mail.
The 27-year-old, snubbed by France manager Didier Deschamps, had a brilliant season last year, scoring 11 goals as the club won the Capital One Cup, a game in which he scored, and the title.
Under previous manager Roberto Mancini Nasri had found himself in and out of the team, but with Manuel Pellegrini adopting a tactic of all-out attack, Nasri flourished.
City netted an astonishing 156 goals in all competitions, with four players - Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko, Alvaro Negredo and Yaya Toure - netting more than 20.
Nasri signed an initial four-year deal after his £25m move from Arsenal in 2011.
