Nasri considers City future

Samir Nasri says the future of his Manchester City career rests in his hands after making a brief appearance in the 3-1 win over West Ham at the weekend.

Before the weekend, Nasri had yet to feature under new boss Pep Guardiola after returning to pre-season overweight, and was reportedly made to train on his own.

But, having battled back to fitness over the past few weeks, the 29-year-old appears to have won back his manager's trust.

Speaking to French TV channel SFR Sport, Nasri explained that hard work and desire will influence whether he stays or not.

He said: "Yes, there could still be movement. It depends on a lot of things in fact.

"There's been a lot of speculation. Things that are true. Things that are false too because they've never shown me the door or anything like that.

"But I said "everything depends on what's up there [in your head] and your desire'. So we'll see. We're going to sit down, discuss it and see what's to be done."

A number of high-profile clubs including Juventus, Inter Milan and Besiktas have all been linked Nasri.

He continued: "I was a little out of shape and then I worked a lot.

"I let people talk. I simply concentrated on what I know what to do best and that's on the pitch.

"For a few weeks now, things have been going really well with the coach. He decided to call on me today and I tried to show him on the pitch."
