Things aren’t going well for anybody associated with Manchester City at the moment.

Just one win in six Premier League matches - against one of the worst teams in top-flight history, Aston Villa - has seen the Citizens’ title bid crash and burn.

Recently, they announced that current manager Manuel Pellegrini would be replaced by Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola in the summer and it appears that the Etihad club just want the season to end.

On Sunday, they lost to rivals Manchester United in the derby meaning they now have a real battle to secure Champions League football for next season.

But it’s not just on the pitch that their players are suffering.

Samir Nasri’s mood has been significantly worsened today after police have impounded his supercar.

The Frenchman was driving along in his £330,000 Lamborghini Aventador Pirelli Edition when police pulled him over.

After inspecting his vehicle, they discovered that the 200mph supercar wasn’t registered to drive in the United Kingdom.

It left the midfielder stuck in the middle of Manchester without a car - not the way he wanted to spend his Tuesday.

Nasri could be one of the many players that is danger of leaving the club in the inevitable Manchester City squad overhaul when Guardiola arrives at the end of the campaign.

The 28-year-old has endured an injury-plagued year and has only managed eight matches in all competitions.

Nasri ruptured his thigh muscle and tendon in October and needed 100 stitches. But it was only revealed in January the extent of his freak injury in an interview with Manchester Evening News.

"With this injury I had to have an operation that resulted in nearly 100 stitches in my thigh," he said.

“My surgeon told me this was a rare injury as the muscle had detached from the bone and the tendon was also 90 per cent detached and had to be stitched back together so it was something that doesn’t happen very often,” he added.

In the previous two seasons, Nasri has only managed 31 Premier League appearances and - even when he is fit - would struggle to be selected ahead of the likes of Raheem Sterling, David Silva and Kevin de Bruyne.

However, Nasri is nearing a return to fitness and hopes to make a return to the first-team by the end of the season.

Nasri signed for the Sky Blues in 2011 in a £25 million deal from Premier League rivals Arsenal.

He managed to win the title in his first season in Manchester and scored a goal on the final day two years later as they managed to pip Liverpool to the trophy.
