Unsettled attacker will be kept at City despite transfer rumours.
Manchester City’s new manager Manuel Pellegrini will give troubled winger Samir Nasri another chance to prove himself at the club, according to the Daily Mail.
The Frenchman joined City from Arsenal in 2011 for £25million, but has not found his best form since the move, leading previous manager Roberto Mancini to admit he finds Nasri’s inconsistency frustrating.
This has led to the 25-year-old being linked with moves away this summer, with a return to France seeming most likely as PSG and Monaco have shown an interest.
Speculation of his exit has increased with the signing of Sevilla winger Jesus Navas, and the possibility of players like Isco, Marco Reus or Angel Di Maria also joining in a summer spending spree by the club’s new manager.
However, Nasri will be given another chance to impress under the Chilean, as the former Malaga boss obviously still sees some great potential in Nasri, who was labelled ‘the next Zidane’ in his days as a youngster at Marseille.
The French international only managed three goals and seven assists for City this season, in a disappointing trophyless campaign for the club.
