Ex-midfielder wants to return to the Emirates
Former Arsenal man has expressed his feelings for a return to his former club, The Gunners.
Nasri said that he will forever support Arsenal and since his big money move to Manchester City, he has kept in touch with ‘second father’ and former boss Arsene Wenger.
Wenger keeps in touch with most of his ex-players, especially ones who he built up a very strong relationship with which included Nasri. He built this up during Nasri’s three year time at Arsenal. Nasri justified his reasons for leaving the Gunners after City became the champions of the 2011/2012 season. The French midfielder hasn’t been able to flourish this season due to injury problems.
The creative midfielder shined bright for Arsenal while under the guidance of Arsene Wenger grabbing 15 goals and five assists in his final full season at the Gunners. He still misses many of his teammates that are still at Arsenal and is feeling like re-uniting with them.
Rumours are spreading that Nasri’s relationship with current boss Roberto Mancini is toxic. Some say that this is because Nasri ducked away from Robin Van Persie’s winning free-kick in last week’s derby 3-2 loss.
A high wage demand of £180,000 a week means that this move his highly unlikely. City also has a reluctance of ‘strengthen’ rivals by selling them strong players so this makes the move more unlikely. Plus many Arsenal supporters still feel dis-heartened about the way Nasri left the club.
