When Sheikh Mansour took over Manchester City in 2008, the club spent a lot of money in a wild way. However, after a few years, the spending became quite logical, and one of the most successful big-money signings was Samir Nasri from Arsenal. Samir Nasri left Arsenal for City in 2011 and played there for six years, winning four awards.

After having given an impressive performance amid the exit of Germany from the World Cup, Jamal Musiala of Bayern Munich has received great praise from Samir Nasri, the former France international on Twitter. Regardless of having defeated Cost Rica, Musiala and Germany had been eliminated from the FIFA World Cup group stages for the second consecutive time as the loss of Spain against Japan cost them the advantage by a differential goal. However, the 19-year-old player was a bright spot in an otherwise dismal performance of Hansi Flick.

It’s Matchday 5 in the UEFA Champions League and Manchester City are in Germany to take on Borussia Dortmund. The visitors came out ahead when these two teams last met and have secured a spot in the Round of 16.

For their part, Dortmund would all but lock up a knockout round place with a draw in either of their last two matches. Here’s a look at how I see Pep Guardiola lining up the lads at the Westfalenstadion. Spoiler: Ederson will get the start in goal.

Along the back line, I like Pep to use this match as a chance to rest João Cancelo finally. The Portuguese defender has started every match so far this season. So with João out, I’m going with Manuel Akanji on the right and Nathan Aké on the left. Rúben Dias and Aymeric Laporte will once again hold down the central defence.

Manchester City's squad for the 2022/23 season has now been officially confirmed by the Premier League following the end of the summer transfer window. No Premier League squad can contain more than 17 players who do not fulfil the 'home grown player' criteria, while the rest of the squad, up to the limit of 25 players, must be 'home grown'. City have 14 non-home grown players.

Speaking to the media ahead of their Premier League opener against West Ham United, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has hinted that star midfielder Bernardo Silva might be on his way out of the Etihad amidst strong links to Barcelona. Bernardo Silva has been on the radars of Barcelona since last summer, with the Catalans intent on landing the 27-year-old midfielder. Having failed to do so in 2021, the Catalan bigwigs are after the Portuguese international’s services once again this summer, although his signing would be contingent on Frenkie de Jong leaving the club.

Samir Nasri was one of French football's great talents in the early 2000s, but the playmaker's career has ended with a whimper despite some impressive early moments. Back in 2004, Samir Nasri was one of a handful of stand-out talents in a stacked field as France looked to the future. Les Bleus beat Spain to win the European Under-17 Championships on home soil, with Nasri's winner helping see off a Furia Roja squad including the likes of Gerard Pique and Cesc Fabregas.

Frenchman Samir Nasri was known for his ball control, dribbling and passing ability during his career. He was compared to French football icon Zinedine Zidane during the early part of his professional football career due to his playing style, cultural background and footballing ability. Zidane won the Ballon d'Or award three times and was the star of the 1998 World Cup on home soil as he inspired France to their first World Cup win.

English media outlet Daily Star recently compiled the names ofex-footballers who have embraced a fuller figure including Frenchman Samir Nasri. Apart from Samir Nasri, seven othersmade the list. The list included two-time FIFA World Cup winner Ronaldo, Adriano, Wesley Sneijder, Wayne Rooney, Mido, Neville Southall and Neil Ruddock.

Dutchman Wesley Sneijder has gone ‘full Samir Nasri’ with his looks following his appearance at a charity match for Ukraine.Fans drew comparisons between Samir Nasri and the ex-Dutch national team star when he made an appearance during the charity event.

Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas recently linked up on Twitter to reminisce on the goal scored against Burnley while they were teammates at Arsenal 12 years ago. Samir Nasri was the assist provider, while Cesc Fabregas was the goalscorer ad the two midfielders combine to give the Gunners the lead after the hour mark on the way to a 3-1 win at home to the Clarets on February 28, 2010.
