Turkish giants Besiktas continue to negotiate the possible arrival of former French international and Manchester City attacker Samir Nasri, despite the recent signing of Talisca from Benfica, according to L’Équipe.
The player remains open to the loan with an option to buy proposition which has been formulated by Besiktas and accepted in principle by Manchester City.
The issue now surrounds the salary sharing agreement, with the Turkish side wanting the Citizens to reportedly pay up to more than half of the player’s wages whilst Nasri is on loan with them.
Samir Nasri has made it clear that he has not intention of accepting a lower wage to make the deal happen.
Talks continue between the two clubs, Besiktas are not giving up.
