The Samir Nasri saga continues on today and French coach Laurent Blanc has spoken out and said that Nasri will not be signing a new contract with Arsenal.
“As far as I know he’s still an Arsenal player [at the moment]. I know he’s in talks with his club, not about signing a new contract, but to find a new club as he told me he won’t be signing a new contract”, Blanc said.
This is one of the clearest hints we have had so far that Nasri wants to leave Arsenal this summer and we must let him go to Manchester City now so we have time to bring in a new player.
There were suggestions that Nasri could stay at Arsenal this season and we would risk losing him for free next summer as he only has one year left on his current deal and he is refusing to sign a new one. It will be interesting to hear what Nasri says following this announcement by his national team coach.
