Samir Nasri has agreed a four-year contract extension worth a reported £41 million (€52m), according to French newspaper, Le10Sport.

The contract will tie him to Manchester City until 2019 and see his wages significantly increased by the Premier League champions.

Nasri still has one-year remaining on his previous deal, but Manchester City were keen to tie down the midfielder, who provided 11 goals and 12 assists in 46 appearances last season.

The former France international joined City from Arsenal in 2011 in a £25 million deal, much to the dismay of the Arsenal crowd, and has clearly proved his worth to the club.

The news of a new contract should numb the pain of failing to make the France World Cup squad for the player, who was snubbed by the national team coach, Didier Deschamps.

Despite shining for City this term, in a season which saw the club lift the Premier League and Capital One Cup, Nasri failed to impress Deschamps on the international stage.

It is widely believed that the France boss dropped Nasri to avoid a repeat of Euro 2012, which was marred by player rows and revolts within the French team, rather than his ability.

While Deschamps may believe that Nasri’s abilities are overshadowed by his attitude, Manchester City’s desire to tie down the 26-year-old for the next five years clearly shows their faith in the midfielder.
