Samir Nasri Holds MLS Ambitions

City ace wants to sample America before heading home.

Check in to Sunderland vs Arsenal

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has revealed that he would like to sample life in the American MLS before heading home to finish his career with hometown club Marseille, Sky Sports reports.

However, the France international is in no rush to leave the Etihad just yet having only penned a new long term deal as recently as 2011, but he is aware that one day he will need to move on.

A return to Marseille has been mooted at some point, and he has expressed an interest in going home, but that is something for much later in his career.

The 26-year-old told L’Equipe: “Clearly, economic reality stops me from thinking about playing at OM right now.

“In the future, I don’t know yet. I would like to discover the MLS. I love American culture.”

But for now Nasri has said that his primary focus is to help City regain the Premier League title off of neighbours Manchester United and he has said that new coach Manuel Pellegrini has issued him with a challenge to hit a rich vein of form and rid himself of the inconsistencies that derailed his campaign last season.

Nasri added: “I had a talk with Manuel Pellegrini. We’ll see what happens.

“He came to me the first day and told me that he was counting on me, that I would be an important player, that I was going to play.

“We’ll see – I’m not worrying about it. If I’m good, the coach will play me. He’s just arrived and he has to get results.”
