Nasri refuses to rule out United move

Samir Nasri has cast doubts over his Arsenal future hinting that he could be interested in a move to rivals Manchester United.

Last week Arsene Wenger admitted to reporters that negotiations with the French international had reached a stalemate over the player's financial demands.

Nasri joined Arsenal from Marseille in 2008 for £15.8 million and has just one year left on his current contract. Although he has struggled with injury this season the 23-year-old would be a welcome addition at Old Trafford in the light of Paul Scholes' retirement.

United defender Patrice Evra urged Nasri to move to the Premier League champions in an interview last week but Wenger replied that he wouldn't sell one of his prize assets to his greatest rivals.

However, speaking to TF1's Telefoot Nasri appeared to suggest that he was open to joining United: 'Let's find out if their interest is true first, and then we'll talk about it,' Nasri said.

'I don't know if I will sign a new contract. Anyway, the discussions are on-going. For the moment, I don't want to think about this. We will speak about it after the match with Poland [on Tuesday]. Do I want to go to United? We should see if their interest is real and if it is concrete first.'

Arsenal are reported to have offered Nasri a five-year contract worth £90,000 per week but won't want the player to leave for nothing on a Bosman similar to when Mathieu Flamini joined Milan three years ago.
