Arsenal and France's Samir Nasri has completed his MCFC medical at Manchester's Bridgewater Hospital and should be unveiled at The Etihad Stadium on Wednesday...
Nasri ticks all the right boxes for a Roberto Mancini City signing. Another young international hungry for major honours is in the bag ahead of new financial regulations. The biggest bonus is that The Citizens are signing a Premier League and Champions League savvy footballer.
Ironically, 24 year old Nasri should be unveiled on Arsenal's Champions League qualifier D-Day in Italy.
Beleaguered manager Arsene Wenger had this to say about his fellow countryman tonight:
'Nasri trained this morning, but I knew before training. He didn`t know. The decision was made this morning just before training...I do not question Samir Nasri's commitment or professionalism because he was in training this morning.
'If I told him 'you come with us and play' he would have played like he did on Saturday but you wonder what kind of a commitment you can have...Football rules are made like that - that the player can be worth a lot of money today and nothing in six months.
'It doesn't look completely logical but, at the end of the day, of course, we are forced into a decision like that for psychological and financial reasons.'
Nasri will go straight into The Blues squad for the latest crunch clash against Spurs.
