Samir Nasri: "My dream is to play in MLS"

Samir Nasri reveals that playing in the MLS before he retires is something he 'dreams' about, while admitting that Marseille is the only French club he would join.

Manchester City star Samir Nasri has revealed that he would like to one day follow his "dream" by plying his trade in Major League Soccer.

The 27-year-old has spent seven years in English football with Arsenal and now Manchester City, winning two Premier League titles and a League Cup since making a controversial switch to the Etihad Stadium.

Nasri still has four years remaining on his current deal with the Citizens having agreed bumper new terms 12 months ago, although he is already looking ahead to his next possible destination.

"Marseille would be the only place that I'd like to play in France, but I think it's not realistic," the Frenchman told Sport Magazine. "My dream is to play in the MLS maybe, because I love the lifestyle in America."

When asked if he had a particular preference for a club in the American league, he added: "It doesn't matter – New York, LA – I want the big city. I would prefer the sun, but I'll take whatever!"

City teammate Frank Lampard will join up with New York City FC at the end of the Premier League season.
