Yet another big name was linked with a move to MLS on Tuesday — and this rumor appears to have more than a bit of credence.
Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri recently told French TV station Canal+ Sport that he’d like to play in North America after he finishes with Man City. The 28-year-old former French international is under contract with New York City FC's sister club until the summer of 2019.
“I like the English league a lot and my life in England,” he said.
“Afterwards, I’m thinking more about playing in MLS — to discover something different — rather than going back to France.”
