Man City announce departure of Nasri

France midfielder Samir Nasri has signed a two-year contract with Turkish side Antalyaspor following his £10m move from Manchester City.

Nasri won two Premier League titles and two League Cup in his six seasons at the Etihad since signing for City from Arsenal in a £25m deal in 2011.

In total, the Marseille-born playmaker featured 176 times for the Blues in all competitions, scoring 27 goals.

The 30-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Sevilla, went on City’s pre-season tour of the United States but had been told he had no future at the club under manager Pep Guardiola.

“A big chapter of my life just came to a end. I want thank every single person i worked with during my time at Manchester City,” Nasri wrote on Twitter.

“And a special thank you to the fans for this amazing support during those years. Without you I couldn’t have achieve anything [and am] so blessed.

“A big thank you to all my team-mates through the years on and off the pitch. We shared some amazing moments. Because of you my trophy cabinet has two Premier Leagues, two League Cups and a Community Shield.

“A big thank you as well to the medical staff and backroom staff for everything.”
