Manchester City midfielder set for surprise Turkey switch

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri looks all set for a cut-price move to Turkish side Antalyaspor.

Surplus to requirements

Nasri, who has long been on the fringes of the Citizens squad, spent last season on loan at La Liga side Sevilla, despite being asked to remain at the Etihad by manager Pep Guardiola.

The former Arsenal man has since returned to the club, but has been made very much available for transfer this summer.

To this point, no club have been willing to match the Frenchman’s considerable valuation, with City having reportedly requested a sum of between 15 and 20 million Euro.

On the move

However, with interest in Nasri having dwindled to the point where the 30-year-old was in danger of spending a year in the stands in Manchester, Guardiola and co. have seemingly dropped their demands.

As a result, Nasri now looks closer than ever to a permanent departure from the Etihad, with Turkish Super Lig outfit Antalyaspor having secured a deal for the attacking midfielder.

City are not expected to receive even half of their original asking price in the deal.
