French midfielder confirms injury on social media
Samir Nasri is facing up to three months on the sidelines after revealing an unspecified injury on his Instagram page. The Frenchman posted a picture of himself looking forlorn on crutches, with the words "What doesn't kill you make you stronger. I will be back better than ever see you in 3 months".
Nasri has endured a frustrating start to the season, making just eight appearances and scoring one goal in a campaign blighted by injury so far. The midfielder joined City in a £24m deal from Arsenal in 2011, and has won two league titles and a League Cup winner's medal in his time in Manchester.
However, the arrivals of Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne have seen him slip down the pecking order, and a summer departure seems to be a distinct possibility. Nasri himself has admitted that he would consider a move to America to play in the MLS when he leaves City.
