Manchester United are weighing up a shock late move to hijack Manchester City's deal for Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri. The Daily Mail says Nasri was in the North West on Tuesday night having a medical after Arsenal finally accepted a £24million bid from Manchester City.
However, United were closely monitoring the situation in the hope they might yet be able to hijack the deal, which is also expected to see around £2m going to the France midfielder's agent.
City now look like Nasri's next club and United would struggle to match the £185,000-a-week wages being offered to the player for the next five years.
Yesterday Arsenal seemed to consider City the more likely destination, confirming a deal had been struck shortly before boarding their plane for Italy.
