The site announced that he’d signed a four year deal, but today retracted their statement:
Nous sommes désolé d’avoir agit précipitamment en annonçant que Samir avait signé avec Arsenal, mais Samir est encore sous contrat avec l’Olympique de Marseille à ce jour.
Which reads something like, “we regret to announce the signing of Samir Nasri to Arsenal ahead of time. Today, he is still a Marseille player”, in a kind of rough translation.
The deal is pretty much there, but the way in which the money is being paid is still in final discussion. Marseille, I believe, want all of it up front, however, we want to pay some now, some later…
I’ll keep you posted…]]>
