Nasri deal in the balance

Filed: Wednesday, 14th November 2018

Negotiations with Samir Nasri's representatives remain ongoing - even though a deal is yet to be struck.

The former Arsenal and Manchester City midfielder passed a medical with West Ham on Monday and was expected to complete a free transfer shortly after.

However the deal remains in the balance 48 hours on, as negotiations continue with West Ham currently unwilling to meet the player's wage demands.

Nasri, 31, is understood to be seeking circa 80,000-per-week, a figure United are currently unwilling to pay due to concerns over his fitness. The former French international's last competitive match was in August 2017.

West Ham's pursuit of Nasri is being championed by manager Manuel Pellegrini, who is keen to land a player he previously worked with at Manchester City. The club have offered a short-term contract until the end of the current season.
