City prepared to listen to Nasri offers?

We wake to reports this morning that City are prepared to let midfielder Samir Nasri leave the club this summer.

“Manchester City are willing to listen to offers for Samir Nasri this summer, Goal.com understands,” writes Wayne Veysey.

“The Premier League champions value the Frenchman at around the £18million mark and are ready to cash in on him if their asking price is met.

“Interested clubs are set to be quoted a figure of around £18m for the 25-year-old in the forthcoming transfer window.”

Elsewhere, Blues captain Vincent Kompany has heaped praise on Real Madrid centre back Raphael Varane after last night’s victory over Barcelona in the Copa del Rey.

“Madrid eased past their age-old rivals 4-2 on aggregate in the semi-final thanks to a 3-1 win in the Camp Nou that also ended Barcelona's 22-match unbeaten stretch at home,” writes Pascal Lemesre from website sportsmole.co.uk.

“Frenchman Varane, who joined Los Blancos from Lens in summer 2011 and is still just 19 years old, scored the third tonight after Cristiano Ronaldo's opening brace.

‘"In my opinion, Varane showed again today what a great defender he is. Well done to him,"’ tweeted Kompany.

Finally, Simon Curtis writes a very interesting piece in his ESPN blog, which is well worth a read this morning.

Curtis looks at Sunday’s win over Chelsea and assesses the performance of some of the team’s ‘unlikely heroes,’ as he refers to them.

“A flowing masterpiece of a performance from Manchester City in their 2-0 victory over Chelsea on Sunday,” he writes.

“One that cemented second place and further strengthened the manager's hand in any end-of-season shootout with the press and the owners - cast one or two of City's lesser lights into the spotlight for once.

“City climbed straight into their stride from the opening whistle, looked the part throughout and had the Unlikely Men shining perhaps brightest of all.”
