Big-spending Ligue 1 club keen on signing Etihad Stadium midfielder.

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri is wanted by Ligue 1 big-spenders Paris Saint-Germain, who are ready offer him a route back to France.

Nasri has come under criticism from Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini over recent weeks with the Etihad Stadium boss claiming the French international is playing at 50 per cent of his best.

The £24million man, who joined City from Arsenal and helped the club lift the Premier League title in his first season at the club, was also heavily condemned for his poor effort in the wall as Robin Van Persie struck an injury time winning in the Manchester derby earlier in the season.

He is expected to be one of up to 10 players leaving City in the summer as part of a clear-out and was the subject of interest from Monaco, who are set to return to Ligue 1 next season with promotion from the second tier of French football.

But the Daily Mail report that PSG have moved to the head of the queue to sign the French international having failed with a bid in 2011 when he chose to move to Manchester City instead. They are one of the few clubs able to match Nasri’s reported £170,000 a-week wages.
