Samir Nasri signs new five-year deal with Manchester City
French international Samir Nasri has signed a new five-year deal with Manchester City, the team announced Thursday.
The midfielder has played for City for the past three seasons, and has won two Premier League titles and the League Cup.
City did not disclose the terms of the deal, but David McDonnell of The Mirror reports Nasri will be making around £175,000 ($299,476.39) a week.
"Last year everything was perfect – I enjoyed my football and I love living in Manchester, feel very settled and I think that showed on the pitch. That’s why I’ve agreed this new contract – because I feel very much at home. Our supporters have been right behind me and it gives me the confidence to play my best game.
“Now I’m looking forward to the new season and to defending our title again.”
The 27-year-old was a surprise omission from France's World Cup squad, which fell in the quarterfinals to Germany.
