Samir Nasri transfer to Manchester City complete on 4 year deal

Samir Nasri has successfully transferred to Manchester City from Arsenal at a stake of £25m for a 4 year stint. Nasri who scored 15 goals in all competitions for the Gunners last season and has been given the number 19 shirt at City. He will join former Arsenal team-mate Gael Clichy, Argentina forward Sergio Aguero and Serbian defender Stefan Savic as Mancini's major summer signings.

Nasri was equally delighted and expressed that he joined a club with " More Passionate" fans.

Nasri, 24, said: "Arsenal have good fans but not that passionate since they moved from Highbury.

"City fans are really passionate. When we played against City, the crowd was amazing. That's what I want."
Later on Twitter Nasri praised his old club:
 "I want [to] thank Arsenal FC for everything this club has done for me. I will always be grateful and I wish all the best to the club.
"And thank you Mr Wenger and all the staff you were amazing with me and I become the player I am today because of you."
Roberto Mancini was ecstatic at such an important transfer and told on the  club's official website of him being a fantastic player with great technique and mentality, and he wanted him to be in Inter Milan five years back.
Nasri could make his City debut against Tottenham on Sunday.
