Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has backed Ligue 1 star Eden Hazard to follow his lead and choose City over Manchester United, according to goal.com.
Nasri was in a similar position last year to Hazard, and the Frenchman feels his decision to choose City instead of United last summer has been vindicated by his side's Premier League title.
Hazard is one of the most highly-rated players in Europe, and the Belgian winger has been courted by both Manchester clubs for a number of months - but Nasri believes the Lille star should opt for City.
"I think Hazard will come to City," Nasri told the Mirror. "He's a young, talented player and at Manchester United there are a lot of people on the wings. I was in the same position last year and I chose City, and I don't regret my choice."
The 21-year-old has been a regular at Lille since making his debut aged 16, and the Belgium international has been Ligue 1 Player of the Year for the past two seasons.
Earlier this year the Lille winger dropped his biggest hint yet that he would join City, when he said he would be wearing blue next season. However, there has been no official announcement and United will still feel they have a chance of securing his signature.
Sir Alex Ferguson has watched Hazard play personally and is an admirer of his talents, but the presence of another Belgian international at City, captain Vincent Kompany, could swing the decision in Roberto Mancini's favour.
