Samir Nasri has agreed in principle to sign a new five-year contract at Manchester City, according to The Mirror.

The 26-year-old, who joined City from Arsenal in 2011, is apparently set to see his weekly pay increase to around £180,000.

That would mean he could earn £46.8m before the deal expires in June 2019.

Nasri, who has just 12 months left to run on his current contract, was one of City’s best players this season.

He scored seven goals and provided seven assists in 34 Premier League appearances for the champions.

Despite his impressive campaign, he was omitted from France’s 23-man squad for the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

As a result, he has been spending plenty of time holidaying with his girlfriend Anara Atanes.

France seem to be coping well without Nasri, who has been capped 41 times at senior level.

Les Bleus currently sit top of Group E following a 3-0 win over Honduras on Sunday.

With no international football to focus on, Nasri’s next competitive action will come in the Community Shield against FA Cup winners Arsenal on August 9.

City start the defence of their Premier League crown with a trip to Newcastle United on the weekend of the 16th.
