Arsenal News: Samir Nasri Blasts Gunners, Could Impact Robin Van Persie's Future
Samir Nasri's latest comments could have a profound impact on the future of Robin van Persie, as the Gunners desperately try to keep hold of their star striker over the summer transfer window.
"I'm glad I left [Arsenal] because City are far more competitive and winning titles, not dreaming about it..."
It's not the first time that the French midfielder has caused some animosity with his former club after telling Arsenal fans to "celebrate your third-place achievement and I will focus on winning titles" after his Premiership-winning season at Manchester City.
Yet without meaning it, Nasri has innocuously spoken right in to the heart of the van Persie saga—giving his opinions and comments as to whether it is better for the Dutchman to stay at the Emirates or make a move to the Etihad.
With Arsenal clearly unable to match the Citizens from a financial standpoint, van Persie's decision may well come down to which club is more likely to land him a title and which club he wants to play for in his heart. He may well be forced to make a decision as to whether the Gunners have a genuine chance to win titles next season, with the answer perhaps deciding his playing future.
The reality is that the Gunners are a genuine threat across all major tournaments next season, and they must be considered as one of the top teams not just in the Premier League, but the entire continent.
Yes, their chances at these respective titles will be severely dependent on whether or not van Persie stays, but regardless of what Samir Nasri might say, the Gunners certainly have the capacity to be a title-winning team next season.
It might be nothing, and it might simply be coincidence, but Nasri's most recent spray at Arsenal has spoken right in to the heart of the Robin van Persie dilemma.
Gunners fans will no doubt be hoping that they inspire him to remain at the Emirates; City fans will be dreaming of their potential attack should they land him.
Which one will end up coming true? That answer, it seems, is still an eternity away.
This one is definitely going the distance.
Do you think Samir Nasri's comments reflect Robin van Persie's future?
