Having landed in Malaysia ahead of a their pre season tour, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has poured doubt on Samir Nasri’s proposed move to Old Trafford by stating that both he and Cesc Fabregas will remain at Arsenal this season.

It had been thought that Nasri wanted away from the club after Sky Sports reported on Friday evening that he had told Wenger he wanted to leave but speaking in a presser this morning Wenger has stated that the club will retain the services of both midfielders stating Nasri is ‘very happy at the club’ and that he doesn’t see why Nasri wouldn’t sign a new deal.

This comes as reports emerged from Holland that United had moved forward with an attempt to sign Wesley Sneijder.

Whilst The Telegraph report that Sneijder will meet with Massimo Morriati this week to discuss his future, the Dutch paper De Telegraaf feel a potential deal is at a far more advanced stage and that a fee of around £35m will be required to bring Inter Milan player to Old Trafford.

    I’m praying that Sneijder comes to OT. Can’t wait to see him splitting the opponent’s defences.

    One or the other would do me just fine. So long as we get a top-drawer centre midfielder soon. I guess they don’t come more top drawer than Sneijder

    good buy. The dutch hitman should be bought, and also Carrick should be sold because he costed us the champions league. A good defensive midfielder should be bought.

    nasri is the best player for united.

  5. nasri’s proven in the premier league, but is not an out and out central creative midfielder. You’d say he has excelled playing on the left for the gunners.
