Samir Nasri has indicated that he would be open to a move in the future to the MLS, but for now remains eager to win trophies with Manchester City. 

That is according to Sky sources, who held an interview with the French midfielder. 

Nasri was at the centre of the Sky Blues successful 2013/14 campaign, scoring a goal in the final game of the season to help his side lift the Premier League title.

Frustration at the Etihad

In vast contrast, the 27-year old was a figure of abject frustration last season, as Manchester City slumped to a disappointing second place finish.

The former French international suffered injuries both at the start and end of the season, ultimately meaning that he was often staring from the sidelines or undergoing intense rehabilitation.

Manuel Pellegrini has been handed £150 million to splash on new additions for next season, and Nasri could find himself sliding down the pecking order, as Paul Pogba, Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne all top the transfer target list. 

However, the attacking midfielder has welcomed the idea of his team strengthening their bid to finally gain Champions League success. 

Speaking to Sky, Nasri said: "The club is going to invest, I think, in new players,"

"Who we need is a question for the manager but if we want to be competitive in every competition - and if we want to take a step forward in the Champions League - I think we need to strengthen in every area a little bit. We will probably lose some players as well so we need to have that depth from the bench.

Speculation  

As reported in the Daily Mail, Roma are monitoring Nasri's future at Manchester City very closely, and should he be pushed out the door, the Italian side will be first to swoop

Roma finished second in the Serie A last season, and see Nasri as an ideal addition to push for further honours next season. 

Potential move to the MLS

Nasri admits he holds hopes of playing stateside one day, but, for now, remains committed to reaching his peak performance and winning trophies with Manchester City.  

"I would like to play in MLS because I love the culture in America.

"But I still have four years left on my contract so what I want now is to be focused on my rehab. I’m going to work a lot in pre-season to come back as fit as possible with a new state of mind - then have a great season and win trophies.

"The happy ending of winning a trophy at the end of the season is the best feeling you can have. It feels great and that’s what I want."
