The 24-year-old Nasri signed a four-year contract on Wednesday after City paid a reported 24 million pounds ($40 million).
Arsenal was compelled to sell because Nasri refused to sign a new contract and could have left on a free transfer next year when his most recent deal expired.
Nasri will be providing even more creativity for a City team already including the attacking talents of Spain midfielder David Silva, England winger Adam Johnson and Argentina forward Sergio Aguero thanks to Sheik Mansour’s investment of more than $1 billion in three years as owner.
