Samir Nasri To City Transfer - Developing Story

Samir Nasri To City Transfer - Developing Story



After disclosing the pending signing yesterday, the popular French newspaper Le Parisien has followed up today with a claim that Nasri's transfer has gone through...

With a headline "Nasri Makes A Fresh Start" that should see camera crews scrambling to The Bridgewater Hospital for second day's stakeout, the French hacks state that the deal was sealed yesterday.

VMC Le Parisien link: 'Nasri prend un nouveau départ'

The story goes that the quicksilver 24 French International known in France as "le petit prince de Marseille" has agreed a 5 year contract at City and The Arsenal have settled for a 26 Million euros fee.

The reason for the delay in confirming the deal is said to be discussions over the structure of payments, the start of the Premier League and the conclusion of Fabregasgate. Nasri will go straight into the City squad for Sunday's game at Bolton.

CREAKING NEWS:

- Sky Sports News have a crew in place at The Etihad Stadium.

- National TV Channel TF1, Paris midday:

"L'histoire d'amour entre Samir Nasri et Arsenal finit mal. Le Français rejoint Manchester City sous les critiques, voire les insultes, des supporters londoniens."

- 12:15 GMT+1 Sky Sports News reports deal not completed but expected sooner rather than later.

- Friday 19Aug: Wenger speaks in glowing terms of Nasri's professionalism, Mancini hopes for deal to be concluded quickly. Nasri goes into Arsenal squad v Liverpool.

- Saturday 20Aug: Sources report £22 million fee agreed by clubs days ago, delay on transfer is due to disagreement over agent's fees.

- Saturday 20 August: Press Association - "Nasri, whose £22million move to City is, according to reports on French TV, said to have broken down - did not applaud the crowd as the teams came out of the tunnel, and was then jeered by some sections of the Emirates Stadium faithful when his name was announced."

Spurs fan here. I hope you go on and win the title and have a great run in the CL. I hold no grudges and look forward to watching you play. I'm sick of the Man U / Chelsea domination. That team you have assembled is suberb and I wish you all the success, except for next week at WHL. Have a number of friends who are city fans, always a pleasure in their company. Best of luck.

Can we just not mention the "N" word again until the transfer is either concluded or not? This whole saga is genuinely boring me to tears, can only imagine how the Arsenal fans must feel having had to go through the whole "will-he-won't-he" think with Fabregas as well! Cheers thenuge, nice to hear anything other than blind hatred towards City nowadays, and I hope Tottenham have a successful season this time out, although not at our expense I hasten to add!

How long before you are called Ex-Arsenal City FC? If i'm not mistaken that's 6(SIX) ex arsenal players you've bought. It is clear who you are trying to emulate and I wish you well but on the pitch is where it all matters. PS. Aguero is class
