Manchester City

This player needs to accept lower wages if he wants out of Man City

The Citizens are in the Transfer Tavern and they’re really hoping their club can figure out a way to get rid of Samir Nasri this year.

Reports from the Telegraph have revealed that Samir Nasri’s chances of leaving are being dampened by the club’s valuation of the player and more importantly, his £9.6 million a year wages.

That works out at around £185,000 a week which for a 30-year-old way past his prime just isn’t very viable for any club to pay.

The midfielder still has two years left to run on his current deal and our landlord is certain he’d be more than happy to see it out.

If he wants to start playing regular first team football again then the former Arsenal man will have to accept lower wages.

With City refusing to lower their £10-£15 million valuation of Nasir, it is likely he will wind up on loan again somewhere this coming season but that is only a short-term solution to the problem.

The landlord wouldn’t be surprised to see the player join the American or Chinese league sooner rather than later in an attempt to keep his high wage packet for the last few years of his career.

You can’t blame him for that, but no club outside those two leagues will pay a passed it 30-year-old nearly £200,000 a week.
