Manchester City given Wednesday deadline to seal Nasri deal

Manchester City have until Wednesday morning to seal a deal for Arsenal’s Samir Nasri or else risk the Frenchman being cup tied where the UEFA Champions League is concerned.

Wenger is prepared to add the 24 year old to the starting eleven to give Arsenal as good a chance as possible at qualifying for the group stage and should that mean City pulling out of the deal then Arsenal will be happy to keep Nasri on for the duration of the season in the hope he may yet sign an extension.

Whilst including Nasri in Wednesday’s squad could devalue the player it does also give Manchester City a nudge with regards to urgency with Arsenal hoping to have enought time to replace Nasri before the transfer window closes. Should Nasri play on Wednesday it is also quite likely that the Eastlands side will look elsewhere for an attack minded midfielder.
