Samir Nasri Transfer Watch

Samir Nasri hasn't been shy about expressing his desire to play in MLS one day.

The Manchester City midfielder again stated that he could see himself in MLS in the future, telling Sky Sports over the weekend that he'd be more likely to make a move to North America than return to Ligue 1 in his native France. 

"Going back to France? I don’t think so," said Nasri. "I’d like to play in MLS because I love the culture in America. Coaching? Why not? I’m going to start to take my badges soon so that when I finish I can look forward straight away.

The 27-year-old midfielder – who has four years left on his deal with Manchester City, New York City FC's sister club – said something similar back in March, citing former France national team teammate and New York Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry as a player whose footsteps he would like to follow.

Nasri is currently focused on having a bounce-back season with in the Premier League. His 2014-15 campaign was plagued by injuries as he scored just twice in 24 league appearances for second-place Manchester City.
