It is reported that Arsene Wenger is going to hold showdown talks with contract rebel, Nasri and try and persuade him to stay at Arsenal and sign a new contract. Manchester United are interested in signing Nasri but Wenger has made it clear that he will not sell him to United.
We saw the power of persuasion that a manager can have on a player when Alex Ferguson managed to convince Wayne Rooney to stay at Manchester United when the striker wanted to leave. I believe Wenger is also capable of talking players into staying just like he did with Cesc Fabregas last season, but should Wenger be doing the same to Nasri?
What I am concerned about is that Nasri may decide to stay at Arsenal for another season but he will not sign a new contract. That means if he decides to leave Arsenal next summer he will leave for free and we will miss out on potentially £20million if we sell him now.
Wenger must be firm on this one, if Nasri refuses to sign a new contract then we must sell him now!
