Nasri is heading into the final year of his contract at Arsenal and cast doubt on his future at the club by refusing to dismiss talk of a move to Manchester United.

The midfielder also claimed talks with Arsenal are continuing, but the comments about United were seized on.

Nasri feels the comments have been blown out of proportion and has insisted he will speak about his future when there is something to clarify.

"I just want tell you don't listen (to) the newspapers and the rumours. I will let you know if something happens," Nasri wrote on Twitter.

United are in the market for a new creative force following the retirement of Paul Scholes, but Gunners manager Arsene Wenger said recently that the club would never sell Nasri to the Red Devils.
