Arsenal boss Wenger to sell Cesc to fund Nasri contract

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger may sell Cesc Fabregas to fund the new contract of Samir Nasri.

The Sunday Mirror says Arsenal have rejected a £27m bid for ­Fabregas from Barcelona but the Champions League winners will make an improved offer this week. If that reaches £30m-plus, then ­Arsenal will accept.

That will leave Wenger with the ­necessary cash to offer French ­international Nasri a lucrative new ­contract.

The pair talked last week, but no decision was made. Nasri has a year left on his current agreement. But the money from the sale of Fabregas, added to the savings on the midfield star's £90,000-a-week wages, will give Wenger much more room for manoeuvre.
