Nasri could be latest CSL recruit

Man City outcast Samir Nasri could be the latest star moving to the Far East after reports suggested Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua are ready to make an offer.

The French winger – who wants to quit the Etihad Stadium this summer after being frozen out by Pep Guardiola – is set to be offered £275,000-a-week to make the move east.

Nasri spent last season out on loan at Sevilla making 23 appearances, but the Spanish club have said they could not afford Nasri unless City are willing to slash their asking price.

The player is set to return to Manchester for pre-season training.

His contract runs until 2019, but City are said to be asking around £12m for the former Arsenal ace.

Money, however, is no object for Shanghai boss Gus Poyet, who is reportedly a big fan of the 29-year-old French international.

Turkish clubs Galatasaray and Besiktas, as well as Serie A giant AC Milan are also said to be keen on signing Nasri.
