Turkish giants Besiktas currently have representatives in London to try an attempt to conclude a deal to bring Samir Nasri to Istanbul. The midfielder is now being cast out by new Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, and it seems Besiktas are keen to negotiate a deal for the player.
Turkish football journalist Firat Gunayer, who has close ties to the Istanbul giants, revealed yesterday that negotiations are ongoing between all parties. Turkish Football have announced that the Besiktas President is indeed in London to plan out a move to bring Nasri to Turkey.
Nasri was left out of the Champions League squad against Steaua Bucharest on Tuesday and is not expected to feature in Pep Guardiola’s plans this season.
The French international’s wages may prove to be a stumbling block for them as he currently earns £120k a week. If a loan move is likely to occur, the midfielder will have to take a pay cut or have his wages partly paid by the parent club, Manchester City.
