Samir Nasri to join Sevilla or BesiktasThe French midfielder has been hit by a series of injuries and failed to earn game time over the last few seasons. He almost spent the entire last season on the sidelines after pulling up a serious injury.

After taking charge at Manchester City, Pep Guardiola had made it clear that Nasri does not fit in his plans for the new season. Nasri did not feature in Man City’s pre-season training due to weight issues. The French midfielder was introduced as a substitute in the final minutes 15 minutes of the game against West Ham last weekend. The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager had also dropped Nasri from Manchester City’s Champions League squad this season.

Earlier, Besiktas were in pole position to sign the French playmaker on a loan move. However, Nasri decided to join the La Liga side Sevilla.
