Sir Alex Ferguson is DEMANDING Manchester United sign Arsenal contract rebel Samir Nasri. The Daily Star says he has ordered Manchester United to land Nasri in a £22m deal before the club's summer tour of America.
United officials held talks with associates of Samir Nasri last week and are confident of a deal.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger wants to keep the Frenchman at the Emirates but is fighting a losing battle.
A source said: "United want to sign Nasri as soon as possible. He's been a target for several months and the manager wants it all done and dusted before the trip to America."
United are willing to hand Nasri a five-year-deal worth around £100,000-a-week, including huge bonuses if Fergie's men can win the Premier League and Champions League.
