Manchester United on transfer alert as contract talks stall

Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri could be on his way out of The Emirates and on his way to Manchester United if the player doesn’t agree a new contract, according to The Guardian.

The French international is moving in to the final year of his contract and manager Arsene Wenger is reluctant to lost the 23-year old for nothing next Summer.

Nasri moved to Arsenal from Marseille for £15 million in the Summer of 2008 and has enjoyed a fine season scoring 10 league goals and making the PFA Team of the Year. Arsenal are reported to have offered the player a new five-year, £90,000 a week deal but Nasri feels his chances of winning titles might be increased elsewhere.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is rumoured to see Nasri as a potential replacement for Ryan Giggs and he could be the first player to move between the two clubs since Mikael Silvestre in August 2008.

Nasri would command a fee or around £10 million but Wenger would be reluctant to sell him to bitter rivals United, particularly amid reported interest from Real Madrid. The Frenchman could be one of several high-profile departures from Arsenal with the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Andrey Arshavin and Gael Clichy all linked with moves away from the club.
