Manchester City have ended another summer transfer saga by finally completing the signing of Arsenal’s Samir Nasri for a reported £24million fee.

Samir Nasri has finally completed his £24million move to Manchester City but still found time to have a dig at Arsenal’s fans.

Despite late interest from rivals United, big-spending City have wrapped up their last major move of the transfer window to complete their world-class attacking line-up.

But Nasri, who has signed a four-year deal worth £185,000-a-week, claims the Emirates crowd lacks passion.

He said: ‘The [City] fans remind me of Marseille. Arsenal have good fans but they are not that passionate since they moved from Highbury to the Emirates.

‘I remember when we lost 3-0 to City the crowd was amazing and that’s what I want. I’m here to play football and to enjoy it and to win titles.

‘It’s a big relief because there were long, long negotiations between the two clubs. Now I’m finally a City player and I’m really happy.

‘I was a little a bit frustrated because I said to the manager [Arsene Wenger] that I wanted to leave. I wanted to do pre-season with Manchester City and to meet my new team-mates. It’s a new start and I’m looking forward to it.’

‘I spoke with Gael Clichy and Kolo Toure a lot and with Patrick [Vieira]. It was important to get advice from players at the club and they know the difference between Arsenal and Manchester City.

‘Patrick said City is the place to be because they are the club of the future and they want to win everything.’

The Frenchman admitted he is excited about teaming up with Sergio Aguero.

He added: ‘When you arrive at the club you want to play with big players and the first game Aguero played he scored twice and made an assist.
