Yet again, another morning where I wake up and all I come across is depressing new from Arsenal. The Sun is running an exclusive where they say that Nasri is on the brink of joining Manchester City for £20million and offer him a staggering £150,000-a-week which is way more than we were willing to offer him.
Nasri had said it is not about the money but rather he wants to be winning titles. I am not sure if joining Manchester City is the right move for Nasri if he wants to win the Premier League. City are trying to do a Chelsea and buy the title by spending obscene amounts of money on players. The reason Chelsea were able to pull it off is because there was no other team at that time who could compete financially against them thus they bought every player they could.
Now with Manchester City, they are trying to do the same but Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool also have deep pockets now and are able to also buy top class players. It pains me that I have left my beloved Arsenal off that list of teams with cash to burn!
For me it is simple, if Nasri wants to leave then let us sell him and get the £20million from Manchester City. Who we can go out and buy with that cash, I have no idea but it is better having cash in the bank than a player who does not want to play for the team.
