Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has confirmed he has begun talks to extend his contract, reports FourFourTwo.

The Frenchman’s current deal expires at the end of next season, but talks between the club and Nasri have begun to keep him at the Etihad: “We have just started talks so far,” he told Canal+. “We didn’t find any agreement yet, but it should be sorted out. I want to stay. I can feel people appreciate me and the coach trusts in me.”

Nasri left Arsenal in 2011, and openly admitted he was moving in order to win titles, with his comments upsetting some Gunners fans. And 3 trophies later, the Frenchman has once again spoken about his move to City: “I spent three seasons at Arsenal without any title and at the end of the season we sold our best player that was Cesc Fabregas.

“I don’t want to be disrespectful, but I had a meeting with Arsene Wenger who told me to not be worried, he signed Gervinho and he will get reinforcements. I preferred to join City and I won titles and indeed I earn a better living. And why not a second national title in three years? I am very happy with my choice.”

City are currently four points behind league leaders Liverpool but have two games in hand.
