LONDON – Samir Nasri has played down speculation that he could be set to leave Arsenal, telling fans: "Don't listen to the rumors."
The France international has seen his future with the Gunners thrown into doubt following an interview in which he refused to rule out the possibility of joining Manchester United.
United are in the market for a new creative playmaker this summer following Paul Scholes' decision to hang up his boots after a glittering career.
Nasri is among the names to have been linked with a move to the 19-times English champions, and he did little to quell the speculation with his recent comments.
But the former Marseille man, who also fired off a foul-mouthed reply to one follower on social networking site Twitter, has now moved to ease the concerns of Gunners fans.
Nasri wrote on Twitter: "I just want tell you don't listen (to) the newspaper and the rumors - I will let you know if something happens."
