Franceâ€™s Samir Nasri controls the ball during their Euro 2012 Group D qualifying soccer match against Belarus at Dinamo stadium in Minsk June 3, 2011.
The agent of Arsenal scoring sensation Samir Nasri indicates that talks between the player and Arsenal are still ongoing, despite reports to the contrary. There have been rumors of interest on the part of Manchester United amidst reports of Nasriâ€™s displeasure with Arsenalâ€™s attempts, or lack thereof, to improve thus far in the offseason.
â€œI want to clarify that there has been no break with the Gunners over the contractâ€™s renewal and we should meet again soon with Arsene Wenger,â€ Nasriâ€™s agent Alain Migliaccio told calciomercatoweb. â€œThere are a few clubs interested in Samir, but it is useless to name them. Before listening to other teams, we need and we want to talk with Arsenal.â€
Nasri had a prolific season with Arsenal, making for a nice bounce-back after having been left off of the French World Cup team last summer amidst politics and infighting. However, much of the mayhem has since tied to outgoing French coach Raymond Domenech, so Nasriâ€™s reputation has been rehabilitated sufficiently with his play for Arsenal this past English season. And with his value at an all time high, Arsenal owner, American Stan Kroenke, is reportedly set to break the bank to keep him.
