With both Manchester clubs having expressed their interest in signing Hazard in the summer, it remains unclear which team the midfielder will choose. Nasri told the Daily Mirror that he was in a similar position when he decided to leave Arsenal, and he advises Hazard to join him at City because the Belgian would have more playing opportunities.
"I think Hazard will come to City, there is already one Belgian in the squad in Vincent [Kompany]. He's a young, talented player and at Manchester United there are a lot of people on the wings." Nasri said.
"I was in the same position last year and I chose City, and I don't regret my choice."
The Frenchman also shared the advice given to him by Patrick Vieira, who advised Nasri to rejected United because he would have a better chance of building up his reputation with City.
"Patrick [Vieira]'s argument was that United are used to winning everything. Last season they won the league title and got to the Champions League final and if you sign this season and you play less well, it won't have been a success for you," he stated.
"Whereas City is a club that's building, which has recruited smartly with the likes of Sergio Aguero, and if you win the title you'll be part of history."
Although many believe Nasri has regressed since leaving Arsenal, he does not consider personal achievements to be as important as the silverware he has won.
"I came to Manchester to help the team become champions, next season the club's ambition is to go further in the Champions League and win the title again," he said.
"In terms of statistics, it's not my best season. Last season I was much more prolific in front of goal with Arsenal. But what counts is the team and the title with Manchester City, so it is my best season."
