'There is a little disagreement over terms of Nasri's new contract', admits Wenger


Written by Chris Wheatley

51 Comments  

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that discussions with Samir Nasri over a new contract extension have slowed down due to a ‘little’ disagreement over the financial terms offered to the 23-year-old.

Nasri has just one year remaining on his Gunners contract and while talks have stalled recently, the possibility of a move to Old Trafford has been reported in the French media since last week.

Speaking with France legend Bixente Lizarazu for radio station RTL, Wenger said despite problems over the terms of Nasri’s new contract, he is still confident of sorting out a new deal.

“We’ve got a little financial disagreement but I’ll try to make him [Nasri] sign a new contract. I’ll work on that this summer. What is certain is that we won’t be selling Nasri to Manchester United.”

Since joining from Marseille in 2008, Nasri had struggled to make his mark after suffering a spate of unfortunate injuries. However, this season he has established himself as one of the Premier League’s top stars being rewarded with a place in the PFA Team of the Year.

With thanks to our good friends ASCFR for translation of the quotes. Don’t forget to follow ASCFR and Gooner Talk on Twitter.

When I was a young bloke there was a saying “making the first million is the hardest”. Then greed sets in.
Pay him what you think he`s worth Arsene, if he doesn`t like sell him (but not to United).

im sure nasri will stay although in 2days crazy times we could get 30 million euros for him! so maybe sell him ealy and secure hazard and another winger? then with walcott, ryo, oxlade and arsh the wings will fly without samir. in a way i would like to see nasri fab and jack as our regular 3 in the middle, although rambo could be great next year, he is still a risk in such a pivotal season. out of interest , who should be 3rd choice CB next year Kozzer or JD?

If he wants too much sell him and buy Eden Hazard who’s a better player and more suited to the left wing. This only becomes a major problem if someone else signs Eden Hazard.

I think Arsene and Nasri could still come to an agreement, although this is a bad sign. If not, we must buy Hazard right now before Nasri leaves. This way I think a bidding war will pursue for Nasri. I expect Barcelona, Inter Milan, Ac Milan, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid? all bidding for him. English teams will bid too but Nasri will thrive away form England and we should never sell him to a rival. In a way this could be good for Arsenal as someone said above, with Chamberlain, Hazard, Miyaichi and Arshavin on the wings we could also… Read more »

ML: 1)Downing 2)Ricardo Alverez
FC: 1)Van Persie 2)Chamakh

Primary Formation: 4-5-1, switchable to 4-3-3 during periods of gung-ho only. If not we will concede goals like kids last season.

Ins: 1)Given(5m) 2)Azpilicueta(6m?) 3)Samba(8m) 4)Baines(10m) 5)Witsel(9m) 6)De Rossi(12m) 7)Downing(15m) 8)Ricardo Alverez(14m)—– Total:79m

Wow, we still got a profit, definitely the Wenger style!

Unfortunately, this is all buy my fantasy.

George my boy……….have you been smoking your breakfast again???? Nice lineup but not likely…..AW won’t let Fabregas, Clichy, Arshavin, and Bendtner go if he can help it. Secondly 1)Given(5m) 2)Azpilicueta(6m+) 3)Samba(8m) 4)Baines(10m) 5)Witsel(9m) 6)De Rossi(12m) 7)Downing(15m) 8)Ricardo Alverez(14m) Total:79m + wages,agent’s fees and whatnot…….AW has never spent anything near half this so it just isn’t going to ever happen. He’ll possibly buy 2-3 new relative unknowns and bring up/in 2-3 youth prospects like Miyachi, Bartley and Frimpong so that is what we can expect next year. We will see the back of Denilson, Eboue, Almunia, Rosicky, Squillaci, and possibly Bendtner… Read more »

4-4-2

With a trailing striker/mid fielder. So maybe call it a 4 5 1

Dump Arahavin and replace him with speed to mirror Theo.

Find some big mean Germans to give our French defense some f’ing backbone and half a chance against corners.

Find a new coach for the defensive staff.

george wakeup! Denilson, bendy, squilacci, fab, almunia, ashavin are the only guys that needs to go but clichy most stay. Get in hazard, falcao, alvarez, samba, oxylade, with another striker like witham then promote frimpong, work on players mentality and gunners will ship in trophies

Nasiri, After being the top choice of PFA award has been on 60,000 a week…I think this is stupid, because when rooney flirted Alex got the paycheck.. Atleast Nasiri/ his agent is still in discussion. Agents are good at bending but not breaking.. Do not let.. Van Persi, Song, Sagna, Jack W, Nasiri, Vermelan, Klochiney, Glichy, Fabregas go.. you can do anything with the rest of the squad.. I am not going to put a wishlist here.. but being a fan for over 23 years and my season ticket has been with me for last 15 years, I do love… Read more »

If he is really rejecting 80k a week and holding out for 100k as roumers suggest, i say allow him and sell him.

Lets be frank, hes had a solid 6months at the end of his THIRD year!!

that doesnt warrant 100k.

Offer him 80k with bonus if his goal/assist tally hits 25-30 and for any silverwear. if he rejects that good luck to him but we shouldnt be held to ransom, sell him for £16m.

The worst wil happen if nasri goes.pleas keep him & fab,but replace bentner with falcao 2 pair v’perse,vela with hazard on the wings,rosiky with bojan 4 ataching midfid & wings,melo to support song in defensiv midfied,squillaci with cahill for central defence, almunia with neuer,bains shud come in to support clichy.amezing as it looks wil give us all we need.

If he holds the club to ransom, sell him and replace him – although that’s going to be difficult if he’s allowed to sign a pre-contract at another club on a free in January.

You either pay him or lose him.

The money you lose in January from not being able to sell him will be much higher than what you lose from paying him what he wants.

Contracts need to be renewed 2 years before they end to prevent this happening.

buy players not just one , buy players that are not learning their trade , but have learnt it and can do the job with only a little improvement, buy samba for defence becuase he will boss it and tell other players when they have made a mistake , buy Gervinho benzma if you can.
Pay them money don’t try to get players on the cheap if you spend the money you will get it back via winning things and going further in the CL. simple

I dont think nasri and fab want to stay at arsenal, this is because they are tired of seeing f#&king kids being bought. Wenger must make big signings this year so players like nasri and fab can see that arsenal still have ambitions to win the title. Bringing in mfuckers like ryo, oxlade and alvares will not convince nasri and fab that arsenal wants to win stuff…Wenger must make the big name signings first then talk to nasri about his contract and you will see within a day nasri will extend his contract.

How can you blame the guy for wanting to play for any team that actually has a realistic chance of winning. With the significant rise of City and what appears to be an inspired bunch up there in CessPool, Arsenal really and truly could be fifth or worse next season…

Good stuff Bob, the season isn’t anywhere near starting and you’ve already written off AFC for the near future based on your exhaustive and profound experience where? Fantasy Football Manager and couch-potatoe sloth weekends don’t count. The only true thing you said is City’s apparent rise but that may be short-lived if Manure,Cheatski and the Pool come after them. If my memory serves me, the summer transfer window closes sometime in August and until that event occurs, nobody can say what AFC will do next season. My best guess is that we’ll see 2 new major signings, from France and/or… Read more »

Dom Mac – I wrote off AFC 5 years ago and my prediction has been spot on..

While not Wenger, Fergie and the like, I am reasonably confident that my collective football experience is far superior when compared to yours. By the way 2 major signings will count for little as the same manager is in place and he has lost the plot. He is dated tactically and that fact is more than a litle obvious…

Bod Todd…..Another unwarranted assumption about your ¨superior¨ collective Football experience laddie, and you clearly aren’t anywhere near the likes of a professional Football manager nor, as far as I can ascertain, do you have professional experience either as a manager,player or official…based on what you write here, while not being the master tactician you pretend to be… You wrote off AFC 5 years ago and you’re proud of that? Why are you still on Arsenal blogs whining about Wenger and company? Lets face it, your an out and out Wenger-hater and a hard-core pessimist so nothing anyone will do at… Read more »

Dom, Dom, Dom. Simmer my boy….Predicting that Arsenal would be winless is not my idea of awesome. Your words. In fact, it is quite the opposite as Stevie Wonder could have predicted that.

Further,one need not be a master tactician to determine that Wenger falls quite short in that area. The fact that I said it doesn’t alter the fact that it is true…

Bob,Bob,Bob….I’m cool but I think you meant trophyless rather than winless? As far as tactical nous goes, just because YOU said it doesn’t add any credibility to that claim….your opinion is one of many both similar and contrary ones…and I am sure that you can’t rationally prove yours is more accurate than those who, like me, beg to disagree. 🙂

Concede on winless vs trophyless however in the end, is it any less painful? Well is it? : )

Rational is relative and in my opinion Wenger falls short of the mark tactically. Just sayin..

Pain is relative……..every Gooner worth his or her salt would say that this season was promising but a disappointment in the end as we were so near and yet so far as the song goes. Living with AFC is like living with a bipolar…one day you’re up, the next you’re down….so it isn’t just a question of less pain but of gain for the pain, to use the Yankee turn of phrase. I am certainly glad NOT to be a Spuds,Birmingham or Blackpool fan, the former for obvious reasons, the latter two because their fans are now looking at at… Read more »
