Did Nasri become a whore by snubbing United?

Let’s call a spade a spade, maybe all footballers are prostitutes! Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp was prepared to reveal that Samir Nasri could have – and wanted to – join Manchester United but instead went to City for the money! The always blunt Redknapp was quoted on Saturdays SportingReview.com as saying that “Nasri could have gone to United. They wanted him and he wanted to go to Old Trafford. But then City came in and offered him more money so he went to them instead. United are still the biggest team in England. City haven’t got the tradition of United, Arsenal or Liverpool.”

The People then reported on the same day that Nasri was SNUBBED by United – after he reneged on an initial promise to sign for them. “Nasri went cap in hand back to Old Trafford when he feared his £24m move to the Etihad was about to collapse due to a dispute over agent fees” it wrote “but furious United chiefs slammed the door in the Frenchman’s face despite him making a ­personal plea to revive the deal with the champions.”

“People Sport has been told the full bombshell details of Nasri’s negotiations with both Manchester clubs – as the Frenchman prepares to make his City debut at Tottenham” it continued “we have learned that the midfielder personally agreed a £7m-a-year deal with Sir Alex Ferguson. We can reveal Nasri is being paid almost £40,000-a-week MORE at City than he would have earned at United, making a mockery of the player’s claim that his move from Arsenal was for football, rather than financial, reasons.

Fergie and Nasri met in Paris during the summer with the player’s representatives in tow and after a deal was thrashed out the player confirmed he was thrilled at the prospect of becoming a United player. The transfer stalled – and later collapsed altogether – when Nasri’s agents insisted on a massive £4m tax-free as their cut. United refused to cough up the cash, leaving the way clear for moneybags City to make a more lucrative, £9m-a-year offer.

Nasri quickly agreed the terms but then, remarkably, his switch to the Etihad Stadium also came close to falling through over his agents’ demands. City were reluctant to pay up and it was at that point that Nasri himself contacted United and tried to reignite his move there. But the Old Trafford ­hierarchy, furious at the player’s change of heart, were having none of it.

Unimpressed by Nasri’s agents’ behaviour and the ­player’s ­willingness to chase more money from City, they told him in no uncertain terms that they were not interested. That left Nasri in limbo and he turned out for Arsenal in their 2-0 home defeat by Liverpool eight days ago. Only when City later agreed to meet the agents’ demands was Nasri able to complete his move north.” The People concluded.

Football reports must always be taken with a large grain of salt but IF these have any truth in them, City – or any other serious club, are more than welcome to this money obsessed football whore AND his advisors.

Do you think that ALL footballers have become prostitutes?

    Precisely. Literally and metaphorically floating about like a hooker on a Friday night…shame, great talent but greedy. Well, all mercenaries go to Libya, sorry I mean Man city…

  2. iain says:

    indeed indeed. I am an Arsenal fan and reckon you dodged a bullet in this case. Nasri had a good 12 week purple patch in 3 years, – we supported him through a broken leg et al and he showed no loyalty whatsoever. I guess thats modern footie for you, I mean just look at Wayne Rooneys behaviour with yourselves last year- money grabbing is the polite expression.

    The agents are the root cause, ingratiating a players greed to get their 10%. Nonetheless , as soon as your noisy neighbours took the Amex Black card to the cashpoint, he was off there. Give it a season, if Real or Barca come calling, he will be off there.

    just another money whore, but I guess you cant blame them – short career and all that. Lets face it, if someone offered to double your wages you would be over there like a shot eh 😉

    Hard to disagree with all that Iain. If someone offered to double my salary when I was bringing up my kids I would have been off like a shot. But then I was never earning the sort of money that these youngsters do. It may have made all the difference between being where I WANT to be and being where I NEEDED to. And yes, Rooney is a perfect example. Agents? They are 80% of the problem football faces

    Gaddafi would have made a great football player agent mate.

    Email from my son and grandson as follows:
    “Me and son at Exeter City v Lpool watching real men play real football.
    Come on you Grecians.
    Food better Beer cheaper crowd more real and best of all
    NO DIVING CHEATING GREEDY DIVAS”

    Good on Harry Redknapp footballers are becoming prostitutes.

    About time MPs woke up and put Entertainment tax back on gate receipts, say 90% on all gate charges over £20!
    Write to your MP and tell him we’re fed up being swindled by these football whores now infesting our game!

  6. Frank Scicluna says:

    Good on you Sean, you, your son and grandson sound like the REAL fans that football needs AND unfortunately fast losing!

  7. donkatron says:

    Im not being funny but most of us mere normally working folk who probably only earn 20 – 30 thousand a year would love to double our wages as it would make a life changing difference and of course we would take it. However these players already earn in excess of 90 thousand a WEEK and the chance to double yr wages yr not going to starve are you. Its all money grabbing bollocks!

  8. Jack says:

    lets face it if arsenal had offered him the cash he would of stayed, we we had offered the right amount he would of signed for us but city offer the money and he took it.

    it wouldnt be so bad if he just admitted that or kept quiet but to start the usual city are wonderful talk is just silly.

  9. The BearMan says:

    The lad just has no class!

    It appears there is a clause in their contracts with Man C, that they have to also rubbish their former employers.

    These footballers fail to notice the grave yard and the warning signs when entering clubs like Man C, and Real Mad. Loads of fallen heroes whose value fall flat in the market place as they surrender their talent for a fist full of dollars.

    I’m an arsenal fan. I do hate nasri for leaving arsenal. But then are you butthurt that he choose city over united? Face it, not everyone wants to go to united. And you don’t have to be at united to won trophy… Then again, base on your argument, aren’t you main striker a whore too for demanding more money?

  11. Rocky Jay says:

    I am an arsenal fan and believe what Nasri did was no wrong.
    At the moment, i would bet on Man City winning the title instead of ManU.
    Nasri was getting 40k more at City.
    and ManU fans are the last ones who should be complaining about this,,,remember Rooney, Ronaldo, Berbatov, Anderson, Jones, Ferdinand etc etc…all players obtained by offering them “more money”??

  12. wiuru says:

    As an Arsenal supporter said earlier we have indeed dodged the silver bullet . There is no doubting his ability but he is no where near the class of Jones or Young who want to be with us . The disrespect shown to both club and fans by Nasri would have UTD fans wondering what we had bought ! We need commitment . Not an Agents pawn .

  13. Frank Scicluna says:

    Please remember Rocky Jay, Berbatov did not even bother meeting with City to see what they had to offer, he went straight to Old Trafford and signed up. The rest – including Rooney from Everton, simply wanted to go to United in order to further their careers.

  14. eric the king says:

    Dear Rocky Jay, so basically if you sign a player, then its for greed? How many players unless coming to the end of their careers actually move for less money? And as for your other observation about title challenging, wolves have as much chance of winning the league as yourselves. I don’t know what is about you Arsenal lot that you’re so obsessed with bitching about United. Our rivals are City & Liverpool, like most United fans, I really couldn’t give a toss about your lightweight bridesmaids, so worry about your own north London rivals taking your European place instead. This article is a very good insight to the mindset of citys signings, & why the hell yet another midfielder would wanna sign for city for anything other than money is delusional.

  15. eric the king says:

    If you need further proof that this story is,fairly accurate, I guess Gary nev smirking away in the sky studio during arsenal v liverpool when they say nasri’s city move has collapsed, & asking “oh, why’s that then?”, & the remarks from fergie’s best mate ‘Arry the bung over the weekend pretty much speak for themselves.

  16. sharks says:

    Ouh.. so now if player move to man united they want to futher their career. if they go somewhere else they a money whore? What a bunch of self righteous fan. like i said earlier, manure is not the only team that can win tropyhy and certainly not the only place player can further their career. just admit it, you’re butthurt cuz he snubbed ur club for city.

  17. eric the king says:

    Not as much as wengers butthurtin at this raping. You’re even worse than Spurs! Good job Webbs pitying you or this would be a cricket score. & on a side note, I hope karma comes in and arshavin gets his leg snapped. No doubt Wenger would see that if it happened

  18. eric the king says:

    Have a good evening sharks, you might need one of the those cushions with the hole in the centre that they use for piles after that butthurt, to coin your own phrase.

  19. ???????? says:

    A couple of things you should have to ask yourselves (I know you won’t as it wouldn’t fit with your story). 1, What would Harry know (if this quote is even true)?
    2, Nasri stated that he joined an obviously surly even to you guys a going places club and that he had turned down Utd, do you think Utd pay much less in wages than City? Because I tell you now wages at City last year were £3m different than Utd’s even though City have more players.
    3, He also said that Arsenal offered a very good contract extension when a reporter suggested he was getting 2 or 3 times more he said he was not and that it wasn’t 2 or 3 times higher than his old wage at all never mind his new one.
    I think you are just upset to think that players would rather make history with City than be part of a club that once made history. With City he could become their Cantona or Keane etc. I’m basically saying that he would be just another player at Utd even if he won the Champs league or the League those legends have all ready been made but at City like Utd in 1990 the history is still to be made. Why would he not choose that even if both offered the same wage? Maybe you need to stop being childish and admit what you know that it‘s pretty obvious City will bring home much bacon in the next few years which will mean much more to City and it’s player than it would at Utd they have been there and done it and I‘m sure will continue. This kind of stuff makes you look kinda bitter.

  20. Frank Scicluna says:

    Let me assure you ????????, there is absolutely no bitterness at all in this story. It was clearly explained that if there’s any truth in these reports – and as you say, IF is the critical word, I for one, will not welcome players like Nasri at Old Trafford. The same will apply to Wesley Sneijder IF reports of his greedy demands are true.

  21. ?????????s says:

    Really you already have Rooney!! If you cannot take what the player himself says but that of some newspaper that doesn’t give any facts or sources then that’s your problem I remember seeing SAF some time ago saying that Nasri was already going some where else it’s obvious where why would he want to stay at a club that sells the best players and never buys quality well unless they are 16 years old. So because of these papers You for one will tar players with the same brush you should be tarring with Rooney with (only you won’t) doesn’t seem to mater what the player says. Now that does look a bit like sour grapes you have to admit.
