Report: Iron to get decision on future this week

Samir Nasri is set to discover whether he has a Hammers furute this week according to the London Evening Standard.

Frankly it would come as a big shock of the club offer him a new deal given his absence from action since the middle of March after making just six appearances in the claret and blue.

And given that the Frenchman wants in the region of £70k a week to sign a new 12 month deal,  the chances of it happening are remote.

Despite Manuel Pellegrini’s huge admiration for the player the Hammers really can’t afford to carry any “passengers” into the next season and following the CandH story earlier that six new players are on their way in Nasri can surely be considered a departure.

If that turns out to be the case it will be a great pity because at his best – as he showed against Huddersfield – he still has the ability to be a game changer.

The Standard reports: “West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini will speak to Nasri about his future before the final game of the season away at Watford on Sunday. 

Having been without a club for a year since leaving Turkish club Antalyaspor after serving an 18-month doping ban, West Ham have wanted to assess his fitness.”

  1. What a player, he also tore Arsenal apart and set up Rice for his goal, he makes us so much better when he plays but a handful of games a season is not enough to warrant 70k a week, if he would take a pay as you play deal then would be ok.

    Watched Kompany last night, if we want some experience in the dressing room and a cup captain he looks like he wants to play less games so could be a good option if the salary was in scope.

  2. All his injuries have been muscle strains due to long night lay off. Get him fully fit in the summer and offer £50k plus appearance bonus. 12 month contract, worth the gamble.

  3. I agree with the previous comments – he is too good a player to cast aside and teams like Palace will snap him up and he will improve them immensely. its not beyond the wit of man to structure a pay as you play wage deal for the first 15 – 20 games and then give him a good contract if he meets the target. if he’s too greedy and wants it all his way, then that’s another matter.

  4. Better off going for mata on a free than signing up nasri…
