Samir Nasri has rubbished claims he is set to leave Arsenal with a sense of ‘anger and bitterness’.

The Frenchman appeared to have left a message for Facebook followers to reinforce his feelings.

But he has since said he doesn’t even have a Facebook account, although he is expected to complete a £23million move to Manchester City.

A message claiming to be from Nasri said of the transfer: ‘It’s nearly done,’

‘I will leave with bitterness and anger in my heart. I am proud for having played with the Gunners.

‘I have been very disappointed by the supporters last weekend. I am still an Arsenal player but I will leave very soon.’

But Nasri has since taken to Twitter to say: ‘Just to make things clear i dont have a facebook so i never said i was leaving with bitterness the guy who said that use a fake account.’

Nevertheless, City hope to complete the transfer before the weekend, with Arsenal at home to Liverpool on Saturday lunchtime.

Arsene Wenger will be without suspended pair Gervinho and Alex Song for that match.

Gervinho was sent off at Newcastle last Saturday for slapping Joey Barton and his appeal against a three-match ban was rejected by the FA yesterday.

Song was given a retrospective three-game suspension for a stamp on Barton which the officials missed at the time and Arsenal decided not to contest it.

It was during the goalless draw at St James’ Park when visiting Gunners fans reworked their usual celebratory Nasri song to accuse him of being greedy.

The sentiment stems from his refusal to extend a contract at the Emirates which expires next summer.

Arsenal have offered a new deal worth £90,000 a week but City have dwarfed it with a package worth £165,000 a week.

Nasri did not play in the Champions League play-off against Udinese last night. He was serving a one-match ban for comments made after last season’s quarter-final defeat at Barcelona.

It helped manager Wenger avoid the thorny issue of whether he should play and be cup-tied and unable to play for City later in the competition, but nothing appears likely to stop another star player leaving.
