Samir Nasri

Post by Cjay » Tue Oct 23, 2018 9:48 pm

Purely hypothetical of course.

And highly unlikely.

But getting Sami Nasri in on a deal till the end of the season if we could should we?

Obviously cost wise its very unlikely, whether he would even consider it to.

But his stock has plummeted in recent years and a doping violation is a black mark and he is unlikely to be wanted by a top side.

Maybe MLS or China or something but he is only 31.

Maybe we could get him in, point to prove etc.

He is a Bielsa fan, he has spoken of his admiration in the past.

It sounds ludicrous, and it is.

But Robert Prosinečki was a former World Cup 3rd placed team player with Croatia in 1998.

A Copa Del Rey and Super Cup winner with Madrid.

Played for Barcelona to.

4th place for Fifa World Player of the Year in 1991.
5th for the Ballon d'Or the same year.

At 32 he joined Championship side Portsmouth.

Nasri sounds fantasy island stuff, but if it was possible would it be worth it?

Or would he be a potentially disruptive, expensive and unnecessary risk?

If the price is right I'd absolutely have him. Would be a good alternative to Saiz and provides some good competition across the front three.
