Arsenal boss Wenger keen to sell Nasri to Real Madrid

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is preparing to cash in on Samir Nasri.

The Sunday Mirror says talks about a new deal for the midfield player remain in deadlock. He has one year left on his contract and Arsenal will not allow the agreement to run down further - that would mean the France star would become eligible for a free transfer.

Arsenal will recall paying the price of seeing Mathieu Flamini depart on a Bosman free transfer three years ago.

Both Real Madrid and Manchester City are keen on Nasri, whose contract status means that he would command a cut-price fee of around £10m.

Arsenal would prefer to sell Nasri to Real Madrid if he rejects their own offer - rather than see him embellish rivals City's formidable squad.
