Nasri signs new 5-year deal at Man City

The Associated PressJuly 10, 2014 

— France midfielder Samir Nasri has signed a new five-year contract with Manchester City, keeping him at the English Premier League champion until 2019.

Nasri was one of City's key players in its run to the league and League Cup titles last season, scoring 11 goals in all competitions and becoming a regular in the team under manager Manuel Pellegrini.

Nasri, who joined from Arsenal in 2011, says "it took me time to adjust ... but last year everything was perfect — I enjoyed my football and I love living in Manchester, feel very settled, and that showed on the pitch."

Nasri failed to earn a place in France's squad for the World Cup in Brazil.
