Pel­le­grini has sent out a mes­sage to the rest of the Pre­mier League by splashing £90mil­lion on Fer­nand­inho, Je­sus Navas, Al­varo Ne­gredo and Ste­van Jovetic.

But Nasri is happy to be scrap­ping it out with some of the world’s best and has got his eyes firmly fixed on wrestling the ti­tle back from United.

Com­pe­ti­tion

He added: “It’s a good thing be­cause last year was re­ally dis­ap­point­ing for us.

“We lost the ti­tle and in the fi­nal of the FA Cup, so this year we want to win ev­ery­thing.

“On the first day the man­ager ar­rived he said he wanted 22 play­ers of top qual­ity – two for each po­si­tion.

“When you are at a club like Manch­ester City, United, Barcelona or Real Madrid you know you’re go­ing to be in com­pe­ti­tion with good play­ers and you have to ac­cept it and give your best.”
