Arsenal have confirmed today that the North London club have agreed terms with Manchester City over the sale of France International forward Samir Nasri...
The statement from The Emirates Stadium reads:
'Arsenal can confirm that they have agreed terms for Samir Nasri to move to Manchester City.
"The 24-year-old midfielder, who has spent three years with the Gunners, has been omitted from Arsenal's squad which flies to Udinese this afternoon and instead will travel north for a medical.
"The move will be subject to Nasri passing a medical and formal registration processes.'
Nevermind three agents and lawyers haggling for a bigger cut, concerns had surfaced over the weekend that the deal might not go through following the airing of a dated TF1 interview with beleaguered Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger which was carried out earlier in the summer shortly after the rags made a bid for Nasri.
In it Wenger proclaimed that both Manchester clubs were on Nasri's tail and that his departure was a long way off.
Well that time has now come for a fee of around £23 million and City's resurgent, close knit squad will without doubt be strongly bolstered by the arrival of the talented Petit Prince de Marseille who all being well be included in the City squad for the weekend's game at Tottenham.
More news as we get it as everyone heads off to The Brigewater Hopsital again...
