Of the many clubs to show interest Manchester United have seemingly come out ontop in the hunt for Nasri. After signing Ashley Young, Nasri would prove to be the perfect addition alongside the Villa wingman. United are reportedly tabling a 20 million dollar bid for his services. A culmination of poor results from Arsenal, as well as a reluctance to sign a 5 year contract have lead to the establishment of rumours regarding his future.
Nasri began the season in electric form scoring nearly every match on Arsenals climb to the top. However an injury lead to a reduced amount of playing time for the number 8. Ultimately Arsenal finished fourth in the EPL and will have to fight for a place in European competitions.
United will formerly make a bid to Arsenal next week. But don't expect the price tag to stay the same, especially because Arsenal will be unwilling to let their starman go to an arch rival club. Nasri was on the verge of signing a contract extention with Arsenal, but may reconsider his options.
