According to the reliable English news outlet Sky Sports, Manchester City are open to listening offers for Samir Nasri.
The 29-year-old missed most of last season due to injuries, and made only seven league appearances for Manchester City last season.
In June 2008, the midfielder joined Premier League club Arsenal, agreeing to a four-year contract. In August 2011, after three seasons with Arsenal, he joined Manchester City on a four-year contract. His departure from Arsenal wasn’t taken kindly by the Gunners.
Nasri made his club debut for Manchester City on 28 August, in a league fixture away to Tottenham Hotspur. Since then, Nasri has amassed 170 appearances for City, scoring a total of 26 goals.
Since the time the Premier League season ended, Nasri has been rumoured to be close to an exit from Manchester City. The rumours intensified when reports emerged of manager Pep Guardiola making Nasri train alone, since the Frenchman was overweight.
Guardiola spoke about the situation recently.
He revealed: “Samir arrived back a little overweight but he is much, much better now.
“He has fought a lot during these weeks (in China) but he is a little bit overweight. Last season, he was overweight and had injuries all season and we want to avoid that.”
The French midfielder may be headed to Serie A, with reports from Sky Sports revealing interest from both the Milan clubs, and AS Roma.
