Arsenal face dilemma as United prepare £20m bid

Published Add your comment

Arsenal will face a dilemma this week when Manchester United bid £20 million for Samir Nasri, according to the News of the World.

The Frenchman is in the final year of his contract at The Emirates Stadium and is reportedly looking for a way out after the club went a sixth season without a trophy under Arsene Wenger.

And with Cesc Fabregas also on the brink of leaving the club, Arsenal must decide whether to run out Nasri's contract and lose the midfielder on a free next summer, or to cash in on United's handsome offer.


The sale of both would leave Arsenal bare in the centre of midfield, but Arsene Wenger will feel getting a substantial return on the two players will be important.

Fabregas is expected to leave Arsenal for £35 million this summer, while Nasri, who was brought for £12 million in 2008, could move to United for as much as £20m.

United are desperate for a playmaker in their midfielder after the departure of Paul Scholes, and Sir Alex Ferguson sees the 24-year-old as an ideal replacement to spearhead the league champions' assault at a record 20th title.
