Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has signed a new five-year contract with the club.
Nasri had initially failed to shine at the Etihad and had a difficult second season under Roberto Mancini, but things improved in a big way during Manuel Pellegrini's first campaign in charge. The midfielder featured in 34 games, scoring 7 goals, and was a key member of the squad that sealed City their second Premier League title. The contract extension proves how settled the 27-year-old is feeling at the club and we can expect another big season from him as he looks to prove the French national bosses were wrong to exclude him from their World Cup squad.

Samir Nasri has been left out of France's WC squad in one of the most shocking decisions regarding the World Cup.

France manager Didier Deschamps stated that Nasri is not happy as a substitute and that "can be felt in the squad" as part of the reason he didn't choose Nasri as part of his 23-man squad. He also stated that he built the best squad for the World Cup instead of choosing the 23 best French players. Nasri said he respects Deschamps' decision and has no regrets. The French midfielder was an important part of Manchester City's title run this season and will continue being a big part next season. The World Cup snub should only motivate him more.

Manchester City won a second Premier League title in three years as goals from Samir Nasri and captain Vincent Kompany secured victory over West Ham.

The success was sealed with an easy 2-0 win over West Ham, who failed to offer the resistance that Liverpool were hoping for. City were in complete control from kick-off, but they had to wait 39 minutes for the inevitable opening goal, a fine strike from distance by Samir Nasri. You could sense the relief around the Etihad stadium, and that feeling doubled along with score-line just minutes in to the second half as Vincent Kompany scored from close range after Edin Dzeko over-powered Andy Carroll. The rest of the game was a procession, the full time whistle was blown, the fans invaded the pitch, and Manchester City are the 2013/14 Premier League champions, finishing two points ahead of runners-up Liverpool, scoring 102 goals along the way. Congratulations to the club and their manager Manuel Pellegrini, who has enjoyed a fantastic first season in English football.

Manchester City forward Samir Nasri has returned to full training and could be available for the UEFA Champions League last-16 tie against Barcelona next week.

This is great news for Manchester City, who have badly missed Nasri's spark in midfield, drawing two blanks in a row against Chelsea and Norwich. Further good news is on the horizon for the title challengers, as Manuel Pellegrini revealed that Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho are only a week further behind in their recoveries.

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has been ruled out for eight weeks with a medial knee ligament injury suffered against Newcastle.

Losing a player for two months is never good news, but the results of the scans are a vast improvement over the initial reports suggesting Nasri's injury was so serious that it could see him miss the rest of the season. The French midfielder could be back in March to help Manchester City for the run-in.

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri will have a scan on a suspected "serious injury" on Monday after appearing to suffer a medial knee ligament injury against Newcastle.

Nasri left the field on a stretcher in tears following the challenge by Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Manchester City fear it could be a season-ender. If it is then the midfielder would likely miss the summer's World Cup too - a devastating to blow to him, his club and France. City have David Silva, Jesus Navas and James Milner available to fill the wide roles but Manuel Pellegrini may be tempted to dip in to the transfer market to ensure there is sufficient depth as they look to challenge for both the Premier League and Champions League.

Samir Nasri scored twice for Manchester City and the Sky Blues were able to dispose of a depleted Swansea City side rather easily in a 3-0 win.

Nasri almost got a hat trick but his brace is enough to raise the eyebrow of many a fantasy manager. With David Silva out and Sergio Aguero having an off day, Nasri capitalized on the opportunity to showcase his talents. He was setup beautifully by Yaya Toure and Pablo Zabaleta for the two scores, but it still required a nimble touch to finish properly and he did just that. Expect a price rise for Nasri, if you wish to roster him, bring him in now. City travel to West Brom next.

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri claims his career has been revived under new manager Manuel Pellegrini.

Nasti has been in impressive form for City since the start of the season after enduring a miserable campaign last time around and seems to be enjoying his football again under Pellegrini. Expect him to play a prominent role over the next few weeks with David Silva sidelined with injury.

The Daily Mail report that Manchester City hope to complete a £21million deal for Malaga midfielder Isco in the next 48 hours.

Real Madrid have also expressed an interest, but the Mail report the young Spaniard believes he will have a greater chance of first-team football at City. Having already signed Jesus Navas and with David Silva a guaranteed starter, the addition of Isco would perhaps spell the end for Samir Nasri's time at Manchester City. A deal for Isco would take the club's summer spending past the £60million mark.

Malaga midfielder Isco has confirmed that Manchester City and Real Madrid are the two clubs to make offers for his services.

City will face a battle to convince Isco to turn down Real Madrid, but the fact he has a strong relationship with new boss Manuel Pellegrini could work in their favour. Having already signed Jesus Navas and with David Silva a first team regular, the addition of Isco would perhaps spell the end for Samir Nasri's time at Manchester City. A deal for Isco would cost the club around £17million and would take their summer spending past the £60million mark.

Manchester City hope the confirmation of Manuel Pellegrini’s appointment could see Spanish wonderkid Isco follow him from Malaga.

Having already signed Jesus Navas and with David Silva a first team regular, the addition of Isco would perhaps spell the end for Samir Nasri's time at Manchester City. A deal for Isco would cost the club around £17million and would take their summer spending past the £60million mark, with a world-class striker still to be added to the squad.

Manchester City have confirmed the signing of winger Jesus Navas from Sevilla on a four-year deal.

The club have confirmed the deal is worth an initial £14.9m, potentially rising to £15.9m over the course of his contract. Navas is a quality addition to the Manchester City squad and will provide pace, creativity and goals while helping to reduce City's occasional over-reliance on David Silva. We await to see what this could mean for Samir Nasri, with a summer move away from the club a distinct possibility.

Manuel Pellegrini takes charge of Manchester City this week and will ask Etihad chiefs to sanction a move for £30million Real Madrid star Angel Di Maria, the Sunday People report.

City have already added Fernandinho to the squad and winger Jesus Navas is on the verge of completing his move, so the addition of Di Maria could spell the end of the road for Samir Nasri. The French midfielder would struggle for a place in City's new look midfield and could be sold to free up some space on the wage bill.

Manchester City have agreed a £17million fee with Sevilla for their Spain international winger Jesus Navas. The fee could rise to more than £20million with add-ons.

Navas is a quality addition to the Manchester City squad and will provide pace, trickery, goals - as well as competition for the likes of Samir Nasri and David Silva in the creative areas of midfield. One has to think that this deal seals the fate of forgotten man Scott Sinclair, who will surely leave the Etihad this summer.

Manchester City are facing competition from Real Madrid for winger Jesus Navas. Sevilla would prefer their Spanish winger to join City as they believe that would guarantee a bigger fee but City will only offer around half his buy-out clause of £30million.

This story is hot on the heels of the Isco reports in yesterday's media which suggests City are keen on bringing in at least one creative midfielder to provide more competition for the likes of Samir Nasri and David Silva.
