Samir Nasri looks poised to complete a two-year loan move to Besiktas.
The 29-year-old, who we recently reported was placed on Manchester City’s transfer list after Pep Guardiola let him know that he was surplus to requirements, is apparently open to the move considering he knows he’s not wanted.
According to Turkish Football, Besiktas president, Fikret Orman, is currently in the UK to negotiate bringing Nasri (and Wilfried Bony) over to their club.
According to The Sun, the deal will be a two-year loan move with an option to buy at the end.
There is talk on Twitter that the Frenchman has also deleted Manchester City from his social media bios. However, as someone who doesn’t follow the guy since he left Arsenal, I’d treat this strictly as hearsay.
My Besiktas followers are telling me that Nasri removed Manchester City from his Instagram bio. Does anyone use insta here?

At this point, I can’t even laugh at Nasri being booted out of the club he left us for. In fact, I feel a little sorry for him. Not sure why. Maybe I’m getting soft.
