France midfielder will not be leaving City this summer.
Manchester City’s football development executive Patrick Vieira has insisted that the Premier League champions have no intention whatsoever of selling Samir Nasri at the end of the season, says the Sun.
The France international has been the subject of intense speculation of late linking the player with a possible big-money move back home to join mega-rich Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
Nasri, 25, has had his worst season at the Ethiad stadium since the midfield player decided to join the club from top-flight rivals Arsenal for £25 million in the summer of 2011, with head coach Roberto Mancini recently criticising both the player’s form and attitude in training.
However, his compatriot has now come out to support Nasri, confirming that the playmaker will still be in the North-West next season, when Vieira expects him to recapture the outstanding form that he displayed in his debut campaign at Eastlands.
