Samir Nasri is still hopeful of joining Manchester City this summer and has told friends he has no intention of signing a new contract at Arsenal, according to the Daily Express.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has previously stated that he wanted to keep Nasri, despite the fact he entering the final 12 months left of his current deal.
But Wenger last night admitted he is now not so sure whether the France midfielder would stay.
It is not completely sorted that Samir will stay, but I want him to stay, said Wenger. He knows that. Hopefully we can sort that out in the coming weeks.
Nasri believes City will offer him potential wages of £150,000 a week, whilst Wenger wants to tie him to Arsenal with a new £110,000-a-week deal.
But the 24-year-old has no plans to sign a new deal with the Gunners and has made up his mind to leave whether now or on a free transfer next year.
According to sources close to Nasri grew frustrated with Arsenal when he was assured in October that a verbal contract offer would be immediately put into writing but the club then took months to get back to him.
Despite the fact he is now convinced he will leave, Nasri travelled to Germany with the rest of the squad for todays friendly against Cologne.
