Manchester United legend Paul Scholes is hoping the Old Trafford club can sign Samir Nasri this summer.
The retirement of Scholes has left a chasm in United's midfield ahead of the new season, and the likes of Luka Modric and Wesley Sneijder have both been linked with filling the position.
However, the strongest link has been with Nasri, and Scholes says he hopes Nasri joins the United ranks.
When asked if the Frenchman was joining United, Scholes said: "I hope so."
Manchester City and Chelsea have both been linked with Nasri, but United are also in discussions to sign Nasri.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keen not to sell Nasri, if a deal can't be agreed to stay at the Emirates, to a rival club.
However with a fee in the region of £20 million being linked with Nasri, the substantial fee may be too good to turn down.
