Samir Nasri wants to remain at Manchester City
Monday 18 June 2012
Samir Nasri has rejected speculation that he is moving away
from the Etihad after an interview with French
football website L’equipe sparked speculation he could quit Manchester City.
The French international said in a statement to The Telegraph: “Yes of course (I will be in Manchester next season). That is why I said something to L’equipe, because they wrote something that isn’t true.
“I spoke with Brian Marwood and everyone at the club and they want me to stay in Manchester".
The midfielder was reportedly being lined up as part of a deal along with Edin Dzeko in an attempt by Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini to prize Thomas Muller away from Bayern Munich.
After a fantastic 2010/2011 campaign with Arsenal, Mancini expected magnificent things to come from Nasri. However, he was left disappointed by Nasri's inconsistent performances with Manchester City.
Nasri's Euro 2012 campaign started well when he scored the equaliser past team-mate Joe hart in France’s opening group game against England.
