The West Ham announced Samir Nasri, or what’s left of him, as a winter signing. Oh boy…
Another French player who lands in England, this one with a recent past in Turkey and history in the Premier League. Although that history had more medical history than anything else.
Seeing Samir Nasri and Jack Wilshere in the same team makes me think about how well Arsenal have sold in recent years.
They even cheated Manchester United recently.
On the other hand, looking at one of the most promising French players of the last decade in such a state is a little saddening. He was even a free agent.
Many aspects have marked Nasri’s career, especially his character. And that of his girlfriend.
Or did someone forget the scandals with the French national team?
There are those who say that the last brushstrokes of the french were seen in Sampaoli’s Sevilla, with a quite interesting version. The one that reminded us of what it once was in England.
Rhythm, technique, dribles and a lot of creativity. Good friend of strikers.
Today we could be talking about one of the most decisive ‘Gauls’. But no. We’re talking about an attempt at rebirth, although strange.
Why look for the elite to be reborn? Going to Turkey was of little use, but…
Manuel Pellegrini is a risky guy. And playful with the failure in his last experience.
The Hammers, however, acquire a player who could contribute. Considering that he arrives free at the club, he gives depth to the squad and knows the league, if he could perform.
Or not. It’s hard to tell.
It’s even more difficult to know the future of Chicharito, but that’s another talk from the same bar.
Samir Nasri, denied, returns to England. Now older and thirsty for revenge. Wanting to show that he still has magic, even though the context needs more reality than fantasy.
It could appear at important moments. Or disappear forever. At the end of the day, he’s a magician. And magicians are always unpredictable.
