Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri believes his best years are still to come after signing a new five-year deal at the Etihad.

Nasri enjoyed arguably his best season in England last term, playing a major role in City’s title winning side, but that still wasn’t enough to see him included in the France squad for the World Cup.

Despite international rejection, Nasri has never been happier in club football and can see things only getting better.

Now 27-years-old, Nasri reckons his best years are still in front of him as City look forward to defender their title.

“I’m 27 now and if you listen to some of the best managers in the game, they say that a midfield player’s best years are between 27 and 30 so I hope that I will give my best years to City,” Nasri told the club’s official site.

“It took me time to adjust to living in Manchester because when you move here from London, it is a big change, but last year everything was perfect – I enjoyed my football and I love living in Manchester, feel very settled and I think that showed on the pitch.

“That’s why I’ve agreed this new contract – because I feel very much at home. Our supporters have been right behind me and it gives me the confidence to play my best game.

“Now I’m looking forward to the new season and to defending our title again.”
