There are just 12 days for Premier League clubs to finish conducting their transfer business and Manchester City are still trying to force a deal through which will enable Samir Nasri to leave the Emirates and arrive at Eastlands to help the team’s title charge.
Nasri has made it clear that he wants to leave and double his salary in the process, with the two clubs reportedly getting closer to an agreed price which will see the Frenchman follow Cesc Fabregas out of the Arsenal exit door.
Roberto Mancini is starting to sound impatient when it comes to the transfer going through, saying: “I hope we can close it very quickly now, but I don’t know the last news about him because my concentration is on the game.
“But I hope – also because the market finishes in the next 10 days.”
It appears that former Gunner Emmanuel Adebayor is on the verge of going the other way out of the club, with Tottenham close to landing the player’s signature according to manager Harry Redknapp.
