Could Nasri Punch Out Of Manchester This Summer?
Samir Nasri has expressed his shock at hearing that "occasionally" Roberto Mancini wants to "punch" him and William Hill are offering 5/1 that the Frenchman is back at Arsenal come the first day of next season while his manager, Mr Mancini, is 11/10 to have left the Etihad by the start of 2013/14.
"Nasri would be one of the first to admit his form since moving to the Etihad has not been as consistent as it was at Arsenal and in order to regain some of that form, he may decide a move back to North London is in order," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
Someone who may continue at the same club next season is David Beckham, who has been praised by the owners of PSG. He is 5/2 to still be in Paris on the first day of next season.
After they progressed to the semi finals of the FA Cup, Chelsea are 11/2 to win both that trophy and the Europa League, while they are 8/1 to do the double and finish in the top four.
Brian McDermott's odds of becoming the next Leeds manager are on the drift. Having been 5/4 at the start of Tuesday, he is 5/2, with Owen Coyle the big mover from 9/1 into 6/1.
Nasri to return to Arsenal by the first day of next season: 5/1 yes; 1/9 no
Mancini to have left City by the first day of next season: 11/10 to have left; 4/6 to still be there
