I'm assuming that Samir Nasri and Arsene Wenger will be having a chat sometime soon.
A nice face to face talk with hopefully no slimy agents any where near the vicinity. I'm sure a Rottweiler or Martin Keown could guard the door.
We all know that Wenger can be very persuasive when he wants to be.
Players in the past have had their mind set on leaving only to be 'convinced' by Le Gaffer to remain at the club.
In Samir's case he says he wants Arsenal to strengthen the squad before he signs a new deal.
That is the biggest load of waffle, and not the Birds Eye potato kind, that I've ever heard.
A month ago he was saying that this Arsenal squad was the best in the league! The link is here.
It's simply a case of money.
Nasri's head has been turned by huge wage offers elsewhere because his agent has whored him around more than the P.I.M.P that is Snoop Dogg.
I can understand him thinking of the salary he could earn at a club like Manchester City but wouldn't it be refreshing if he turned his back on those riches?
That said he wouldn't be going skint at Arsenal would he?
It will be hard for Nasri to remain at the club.
He hasn't exactly endeared himself to the Gooner faithful but I'd say that maybe that is down to bad advice from his agent.
Nasri has alienated some Gooners just as much as ET alienated Elllllliott.
If he stays, and I'm sure that Wenger can persuade him too, it will take more than a six month cameo to win over those who doubt him.
There is loads of speculation but lets see what happens after Wenger has spoken to him.
Keep It Goonerish......
