The highly rated France international’s current deal with the mega-rich north-west outfit still runs until June 30 2015, however, with the player having displayed such eye-catching form for City so far in this campaign, the club’s hierarchy are now keen to reward him for those displays.

And this is all in stark contrast to the previous season when Nasri was badly out of form, while also in constant disputes with City’s then head coach Roberto Mancini.

However, since the Italian was given his marching orders at the end of the previous campaign, to be replaced by Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini, Nasri appears to have regained his focus and passion for the game again.

So much so that the 26-year-old will now be offered a new bumper long-term deal to see the Frenchman finish his career in the north west.

Nasri has managed to register an impressive five goals and six assists in total this season for City in his 28 matches in all competitions, including four strikes and three assists in his 21 Premier League outings for the club.
