Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini will hold crunch talks with Samir Nasri this week.

Pellegrini wants to be sure of the Frenchman's commitment.

Nasri, 26, a target for Monaco, was a £24million signing from Arsenal two years ago and has a further two years on his contract, says the Daily Star.

But the France international's patchy form led to Mancini saying last season he would "like to give Nasri a punch".
