L'Equipe cites Le Parisien. He apparently already told Laurent Blanc and some of his teammates.

Honestly, he's been crap with the France NT and seems to be very arrogant. Used to be a fan. Not so much now.

Nasri on the verge of City move -BBC sport Empty Nasri on the verge of City move -BBC sport

Arsenal midfielders Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri are both close to finalising moves away from the club.

Fabregas is on the verge of signing for European champions Barcelona for a fee believed to be about £35m.

BBC Sport also understands that Nasri is set to move to Manchester City with the clubs close to agreeing a fee between £22m and £24m.

According to a senior Arsenal source, all the funds generated by Fabregas's sale will be reinvested in new players.

The Gunners have been linked with Scott Dann, Phil Jagielka and Gary Cahill.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger looks intent on strengthening his defence and reports have suggested centre-backs Dann of Birmingham, Everton's Jagielka and Cahill of Bolton could be targets.

Fabregas, 24, would be unable to feature for Barcelona in the Champions League if he plays a part in Arsenal's match with Udinese on Tuesday, motivating both clubs to complete a deal before that game.

The BBC understands a fee of £30m, plus over £5m of additional performance-related payments, is close to being reached for Fabregas.

It is believed that, if he is sold, the Spaniard will be due £4m in compensation - £1m for each year of his contract he did not complete - but may be prepared to forego that payment in order to facilitate a deal.

Negotiations have been conducted by Barcelona's vice-president Josep Maria Bartomeu and is believed to be a final take-it-or-leave-it offer, leaving Arsenal having to sell one of the major assets or keep a player who has his heart set on a move.

The transfer fee is significantly less than the £40m that Arsenal had been holding out for and suggests that the Gunners felt they had no choice but to sell a player who wanted to leave.

Fabregas, who has 58 caps for Spain, joined Arsenal from the Catalan giants in 2003 and, since making his name in north London, has been persistently linked with a return to his boyhood club.

If the Fabregas deal goes through as expected, he will become Barcelona's second major signing of the summer following their £23m purchase of Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez.

A board member was adamant in saying that all the money gained from the Cesc transfer will be spent.

Not sure if the Nasri money will be used or not though.

Sucks for Arsenal, but maybe they can find good replacements.

Haha, to be honest, even if we don't reinvest, I still think we have a strong squad. For the first time in quite some time, I have a lot of faith in the youngsters that are have gone through to the first team. Lansbury, Miyiaichi, Frimpong, Jenkinson, AOC, Ramsey, Wilshere...

Sure, that is a lot of young players, but I have faith in all of them and I do believe that we'd be alright even without reinvesting that much.

Edit* Then again, I'm a delusional Arsenal fan so..

I was one of the first who bashed William Gallas when he said that Nasri was a little sod and trouble maker and all he cared about was money. Looks like he was right about him all along.

Went from a fan's favorite to a prick in a couple of months. He has been well below average for 8 months now. If we get 22-24 million for him then I'd be very happy.

Citys attacking force looks strong, problem is the lack of chemistry tho.

I hope he ends up rotting on the bench if he does move and with City's talent it's a real possibility.

I can't wait to hear Nasri's statement after he's signed with City.

He's going to be talking pure bullshit and making exuses for leaving Arsenal when everyone knows he left for the money.

He had everything at Arsenal...a guaranteed spot, a manager who genuinely cared for him, good friends, and was being offered a good contract and Cesc's huge AMC role.

Sad to see it end like this for Nasri.

Man's going out a la Adepaymemore.....disappointing is an understatement in terms of this transfer.

we wont miss nasri AT ALL.


i will say he played hard and always showed grit for us, nearly getting into several fights on the pitch. but he's already been replaced, and is horrible in the center. we are actually hustling city if we sell him for more than 20m.....

that's not to say he wont do well there, but we just dont need him at arsenal anymore

If both Cesc and Nasri leave this window I imagine very few of the players that have jumped ship recently will see it as anything other than vindication of their choices.

I honestly don't mind them leaving if they actually don't want to be at the club, its just the price that Fabregas is reportedly leaving for is too low.

90k vs 180-185k p/w? wouldn't u leave your job and get yourself a new boss? if you sell info to the competitor (a la pass to Iniesta &cause a goal) in a K/O, that's another issue :coffee:
