Nasri’s future at Arsenal has taken another twist. It seemed that the Frenchman would be happy to stay at Arsenal this season and not sign a new contract and then reasses where the team stands at the end of the season. Arsene Wenger was also happy with this plan even if it meant he could lose Nasri on a free next summer.
But the latest developments coming out of Ashburton Grove are not good. According to The Mirror, Nasri and Wenger have had a fall out and Nasri will not be travelling with the team to Portugual when we take on Benfica today (Saturday). Apparently Wenger and Nasri clashed on the flight back from the Far East tour and their relationship has never been the same after that and now it has reached levels where Nasri wants to leave Arsenal. This is all still press speculation but where there is smoke there is fire.
The official word from Wenger is, “Nasri has a muscular problem”. And that is why he has not traveled with the team.
I still believe that Arsenal should sell Nasri to Manchester City this summer for £22million rather than having a player who is clearly unhappy at the club and we risk losing him for nothing next summer.
