Ex-Arsenal midfielder 'considered' return to club

Nasri

Former Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri looked into the possibility of re-joining his former club, it has emerged.

Nasri, who famously admitted that he will always be an Arsenal fan, has kept in close contact with his ‘second father’ and Gunners’ boss Arsene Wenger since joining Manchester City in a £24 million deal last summer.

French tactician Wenger keeps in touch with many of his former players, especially fellow compatriots such as Nasri with whom he had built up a close relationship with during the Frenchman’s three years in North London.

25-year-old Nasri justified his reasons for leaving Arsenal last season as City went on to win the Barclays Premier League title, although the ex-Marseille midfielder hasn’t been involved as much as he would have liked so far this campaign due to injury problems.

Homesick?

Creative midfielder Nasri flourished under the guidance of Wenger and bagged fifteen goals and five assists in his final full season at the club and still misses many of his former team-mates, along with his old Hampstead-based mansion.

His relationship with City boss Roberto Mancini is also reportedly ‘strained’ after the Italian criticised Nasri for ducking out of the way of Robin van Persie’s free-kick winner in the Manchester derby last Sunday.

A return to Arsenal is highly unlikely because of Nasri’s £180,000-a-week wage demands, City’s reluctance to strengthen a ‘rival’, added to the fact that many Arsenal supporters still feel resentment over the circumstances in which he left the club.

Would you take Nasri back if he was available next summer? Leave your opinion in the comments section below.

If City were willing to sell him back for a reasonable fee and Nasri was willing to take a salary cut I would have no problems with him donning the red and white shirt again. He’s a quality player, and we don’t have too many of those at the moment.

Why the hell not. Either way, he’s the only one of our recent most high-profile departures not to go on strike, although that’s not my reasoning. Fine player.

@erlend. I respect your point but I reckon you are in a very small minority among The Arsenal support. I would hate to have back after the way he behaved.

I’d have him back, whatever he’s done, he’s a quality player, and, a lot of players go back to clubs after leaving and fans don’t seem to mind. I’d have no problems with him in red and white again.

I say yes to his rejoining Arsenal. Remember the story of the prodigal son? Maybe he will have learnt his lesson and will commit 100%. Gunners will bury the hatchet and we’ll move on.

NO WAY. He’s had his chance. There are plenty of players with his ability at that price give them a chance and they might appreciate it. Nasri is not a team player and Mancini is right he chickened out, take one for the team. Amazing anyone would take him back next they will want to take Adebayor back. These guys are in it for the money and an easy life.

10minutes in the stocks, then slap a red and white on him. We will make him second in the line of prodigals who begged to return, the first being T. Henry.

Take him back if this is true and nasri is willing to take a pay cut then not only does it give us a top quality player( that wenger keeps talking about getting) but it will also prove that his not a gold digger or a greedy prick but a true gooner but I really can’t see this roomer being true sorry

I would take him back, because we need better wingers than Gervinho and Aaron Ramsey (he is not a winger). I’m sure if Nasri came back and played fantastic then he would be accepted by the majority again, plus it would annoy Piers Morgan 🙂

Not gonna happen considering his wage @City and his bad attitude and worst Wenger,who wants to come play for Arsenal now? We can’t attract big players and even we can’t compete in wages. Wenger is leading our club to perpetual destruction.

Are we really in the place to put our pride before our Football? We’re borderline miserable by Arsenals standards right now. If Nasri wants to come back, I’ll welcome him with open arms. Just like I’m sure all the Nasri haters will to if he starts producing goals and helping us get back to where we belong. I’m not sure if I’d be happy giving him what he wants in terms of money though, but then again we certainly have the money right now, it’s just the club doesn’t want to spend it for some reason.

Ok lets recap he has skill, flair, pace, an eye for goal, a great pass, great pressing player i would love to see him in our midfeild but £180000 to <£100000 its just not happening its like the nani dreams going about

you know in life i never dreamed of myself watching man-city playing until simir moved to city, i would cry inside to see him playing as i knew i loved his way me playing i always had this vision of seeing nasri wearing our away kit playing a free role on the right wing and ox-chambo on the left with the likes of carzola and wilshere we can be strong again rise arsenal rise. I say we take him back first if he apologise to those he hurtin most.
