Man City completes signing of Nasri from Arsenal

Manchester City has completed the signing of Samir Nasri from

Arsenal, adding the France midfielder to an expensively assembled

squad already filled with attacking talent.

The 24-year-old Nasri signed a four-year contract Wednesday

after City paid a reported $40 million.

Arsenal was compelled to sell after three years because Nasri

refused to sign a new contract and could have left on a free

transfer next year when his most recent deal expired.
