Man Utd chiefs convinced Arsenal will sell them Nasri

Manchester United are convinced Arsenal will sell Samir Nasri to them in the coming days.

The Telegraph says despite the insistence of Arsene Wenger earlier this month that, 'One thing's for sure: we're not selling him (Nasri) to Manchester United,' United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has become increasingly confident in his chances of prising Nasri from Arsenal.

With the player refusing to commit to a new contract at the Emirates, Arsenal risk losing the France international for nothing when his current deal expires next summer and United have been informed that Nasri is prepared to leave Arsenal for Old Trafford.

Talks involving third parties linked to United and Nasri took place earlier this month and senior figures at Old Trafford believe that the economics of the deal, with Arsenal standing to receive a substantial fee for a player entering the final year of his contract, will ultimately prove decisive in their favour.
