Amongst speculation that Samir Nasri is moving to Manchester United, the Arsenal star has tried to silence rumours surrounding his exit from the Gunners on his twitter account.

"I just want tell you don't listen [to] the newspapers and the rumours. I will let you know if something happens," Nasri wrote, in response to the reports that he is leaving Arsenal.

Nasri had been the centre of controversy after Manchester United star Patrice Evra invited the 23-year-old to join the Old Trafford club.

"If Samir comes, he has to know there is no room for mistakes," Evra told French newspaper L'Equipe.

"Each year you are playing to win. That is Manchester United's culture.


"I have been at Manchester United for five years and I can't remember how many trophies I have won … 13? 15? So 'Petit Prince', if you want to be King, you know where you have to go."

Rio Ferdinand also stoked the fire over Nasri’s possible move away from Arsenal, comparing the star to legend Eric Cantona.

Exit talk from Arsenal has been rife ever since the side resigned to a sixth season without a trophy, and Nasri was particularly put in the spotlight when Arsene Wenger admitted there were problems with the financial side of Nasri’s contract.

"We have a financial disagreement which hasn't yet been settled. We are still in discussions but we haven't agreed a deal,” Wenger said.

But the Arsenal manager quashed rumours that Nasri might head to Old Trafford, singling out the club as a no go for the playmaker.

“One thing's for sure, we're not selling him to United,” Wenger said.
