"Nasri, no - I don't think he is coming to United," Ferguson said in a press conference on the club's American pre-season tour. "That is all I can tell you. I think that he has agreed to go somewhere else."
Meanwhile, Ferguson confirmed that he is still on the hunt for a replacement for Paul Scholes, who retired at the end of last season.
"How do you replace somebody like Paul Scholes? It's very difficult," he said. "How will we overcome it? Maybe the next few weeks will help us overcome it. Maybe somebody will emerge out of the youth team or one of the young players emerge, and then we carry on."
