Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri is becoming an increasingly isolated figure in the Citizens squad, according to a report from the Telegraph.
On the move
The French attacking midfielder is said to be very much up for sale this summer, with City boss Pep Guardiola eager to be rid of the 30-year-old before the beginning of next season.
As a result, Nasri, who spent last season on loan at Sevilla, travelled with the rest of the Sky Blues’ squad on their tour of the United States, in a bid to improve his fitness and entice potential suitors into making an offer for his services.
However, the oft-maligned former Arsenal man has reportedly ruffled a number of feathers in the squad of the Premier League giants over the last week, with his poor attitude and lack of work-rate leading to many players questioning why Nasri was brought on the trip in the first place.
As per the Telegraph, a source close to Manchester City’s dressing room revealed:
‘Some of the players don’t understand why Nasri is even here.’
‘He has an arrogant attitude and doesn’t appear to care. He knows he will be leaving and he’s turning out to be someone who shouldn’t be on the trip.’
‘The club can’t wait to get rid of him’
Serie A bound?
Of the clubs interested in a move for Nasri, Italian giants AS Roma are said to be most seriously considering a bid, with the capital club having balked at Leicester City’s 40 million Euro demands for Riyad Mahrez.
