Wenger denies Nasri exit

Arsene Wenger has denied Samir Nasri will be leaving Arsenal to join Premier League rivals Manchester United this summer.

Nasri enjoyed his finest season in an Arsenal shirt and was included in the PFA player of the year nominees, which has put him in the shop window for European clubs.

The Frenchman has only 12 months remaining on his contract at the Emirates meaning there is a real danger he could leave the club on a free in a years’ time, but Wenger insists he is going nowhere, even if talks over a new deal have hit a stumbling block.

"One thing's for sure: we're not selling him to Manchester United," Wenger told the French radio station RTL.

"Are we still in discussions with Nasri? Yes, but we are still in disagreement over the financial contract on offer, which we haven't settled. We are trying to extend his deal." He added.

Wenger is looking forward to a busy summer and is rumoured to be eyeing up Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema and Lille forward Gervihno – additions the boss hope will line up alongside Nasri and club captain Cesc Fabregas next season. The Spaniard was the subject of a bid from Barcelona last season and Wenger insists he will not be approached by the Catalan club this time around.

“Barcelona were interested last year in Cesc but not this year. For me, he's the world's best midfielder.” He commented.

"He's our captain. We've built the team around him. Of course we want to keep him."
