training when something’s wrong and that’s interesting for us because he wants us to play with a principle and to understand.”
Nasri made just 22 starts last term as he struggled to find consistency under Mancini.
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.
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.”
