Nasri on the horizon; Moscow thoughts

Add comment May 22nd, 2008

Nasri representing FranceSamir Nasri’s agent has admitted that his client is considering an offer from Arsenal:

“We are not in a hurry. It is true that we are examining an offer from Arsenal, which is interesting for Samir Nasri from a sporting point of view. But I have also received other offers.”

The reason they’re “not in a hurry” is probably that the deal is very close to completion already – from what I hear Nasri could be an Arsenal player by the end of the week.

If the deal is delayed at all, I imagine it might be connected to the fact that Marseille may be loathe to give the ‘OK’ for the deal until they have secured Nasri’s replacement: Hatem Ben Arfa, of Lyon.

Nasri might not be the only Frenchman arriving this week, with 17-year old midfielder Francis Coquelin set to sign.  Arsene also apparently has an interest in PSG midfielder Clement Chantome, who would be a somewhat underwhelming replacement for Mathieu Flamini.

Last night saw Manchester United beat Chelsea in the Champions League Final.  Now yesterday I laid my cards on the table and admitted I wanted a Chelsea victory.  And on balance of play, I reckon they deserved it – alas, it wasn’t to be.

The penalties themselves were, fittingly, much like a game of Russian Roulette.  Amusingly, it was a game of Russian Roulette in which the heads of Cristiano Ronaldo, John Terry, and Nicolas Anelka all exploded as the despised trio missed.

I don’t have much more to say about the game, other than to commiserate my Chelsea-supporting family members, of which there are several.  After the pain of Paris, I know how they feel.

But what the result does mean is that we still have the chance to be the first London side to win it.  Starting now.  Come on Arsenal.
