The Frenchman, 24, has endured a difficult start to life in Manchester but he has stated that he is certain it was the correct career move, despite criticism about his motives.
"When you're a fan of a club, you don't know what happens on the inside. The easiest thing for the fans to say is 'He went there for the money, he betrayed us'. I had a better financial proposition in another country, which I didn't choose," Nasri told The Times.
"Yes I have good wages here, I can't deny, but every player has good wages. If you play at Arsenal, you have better wages than somewhere else. I didn't choose Manchester City for the money. The Premier League table shows that."
Nasri is expected to be on the bench for the game with Tottenham on Sunday afternoon.
