Bayern Munich rival Man Utd for Arsenal contract rebel Nasri

Bayern Munich have joined the battle for Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri.

The Mail on Sunday says Bayern Munich are poised to slug it out with Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea for the capture of Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri.

The Germans, whose repeated profits in recent years are said to have made them the fourth richest club in the world, have £200million to spend and want Nasri to line up alongside - and then become an eventual replacement for - 28- year-old Franck Ribery, who is nearing the end of his contract.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is concerned that Nasri, 23, and fellow Frenchman Gael Clichy, who have a year left on their contracts, are vulnerable to big-spending clubs.

United's interest is genuine, especially as Wesley Sneijder's £250,000-a-week pay demands have priced the Holland midfielder out of their reach.
