Man City ready to slash Nasri price after lack of interest

Manchester City are prepared to slash Samir Nasri’s asking price because of a lack of interest, according to a report in The Sun.

The newspaper claims that Man City are yet to receive any offers for the Frenchman as clubs have been put off by his £150,000-a-week wages.

It is reported that bosses at the Etihad may be forced to reduce his asking price to around £12 million to attempt to attract offers.

The Sun report that La Liga giants Sevilla have been given the option to sign the 29-year-old on a more permanent basis following his year-long loan with the Spanish club, but haven’t reciprocated.

During his season-long loan away from City the Frenchman was riddled with injuries, where a sprained ankle and continual muscular problems saw him miss a total of 15 games for the club, which could be why the club don’t want to commit.

It is said that Pep Guardiola doesn’t want to loan out Nasri again next season, yet the boss doesn’t have plans for him in the current squad, which means the club will want to cash in and see the winger make a departure this summer.

Nasri also doesn’t want to return to the Etihad and is hopeful of remaining with a La Liga club, although he is open to another Premier League move.

The report claims that the ex-Arsenal star has had some interest from former club Marseille, the club he left in 2008 to join the Gunners, but they’re yet to make an offer.

Nasri has two years remaining on his contract with City.
