To the surprise of many Samir Nasri was included in Manchester City’s squad yesterday for their match against West Ham United, which they won by 3-1.

Perhaps an even bigger surprise is that Man City coach Pep Guardiola gave Nasri playing time as he sent the 29-year old Frenchman on to the pitch at the 75 minute mark.

With Nasri’s pending move to the Black Eagles this started a lot of speculation, is Nasri staying at Man City afterall?

Pep Guardiola talking to the press in a post-match interview kept the door open for Nasri to both stay and leave, “It depends on the player, but he can stay. Samir arrived overweight, but after one week, 10 days, it was fantastic how he trained, how he competed. His quality is on another level, but it depends on him.” (Talksport)

Nasri himself spoke to SFR Sport,“Things could move, it depends on lots of things. There is lots of speculation, some of it is true, some of it is false. I have never been shown the door or whatever you want to call it. I was just told that it all depended on my desire. So we will sit dow and discuss the right way to go forward.”

According to Haber1903 following his impressive performance as a substitute yesterday, despite playing only a good 15 minutes, Samir Nasri will have a final meeting with Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola, who left the door open for him to stay.

Following the conclusion of this meeting, Nasri will notify Beşiktaş on his final decision.

The transfer window in Turkey closes on Wednesday (August 31st) night.
