Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that contact has been made by Manchester United and Manchester City over the possible transfer of Samir Nasri.
The France international has been heavily tipped to leave the London club after refusing to sign a contract extension on his current deal which expires in less than 12 months. A move to City looked to be inevitable though it is believed the player himself would prefer to move to Old Trafford rather than the Etihad Stadium.
Throughout the whole sage, Wenger has refused to concede that Nasri could be on the move and has scoffed at the prospect of selling to his Premier League rivals but now he has finally revealed that a transfer could happen though still asserting his desire to keep the 24-year-old.
“Both Manchester clubs are interested,” Wenger told French television station TF1. “I’ve always wanted to keep hold of him. I think deep down he is happy here. There is no departure of Nasri at the moment
“Maybe one day, but it’s far, far, far from being done.”
